Webcam allows viewing of dam removal, restoration of trout creek

Visit forest website

Work is now underway to remove Hemlock Dam north of Carson and restore Trout Creek as a free flowing stream and enhance Lower Columbia Steelhead habitat in the Wind River drainage.

If you can't visit the site in person to watch the restoration work, which will occur through the summer, you can now log on and visit the site remotely via a live webcam.

The camera was made available through a partnership with the University of Washington which also performs research at the Wind River Canopy Crane.

The Canopy Crane is located near the Trout Creek restoration project, in the Wind River Experimental Forest.

To view the camera click on the Hemlock Dam webcam link located on the home page of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest website,
