In 1960, Henry Anderson of the USDA Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station (PSW) selected Caspar Creek as a site for "... a study of logging effects upon streamflow, sedimentation, fish life and fish habitat...." This remains the primary purpose of an ongoing and expanded research program under a unique partnership between PSW and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CALFIRE). We use large-scale logging experiments in Caspar to study the effects of forest disturbance and evolving forest practices.
