Badger Creek Fish Passage Restoration
Badger Creek is a tributary to Johnson Creek in rural Clackamas County. A group of three small diameter culverts under the Springwater Trail were a complete barrier to coho salmon, steelhead, Pacific lamprey and resident trout passage to upstream habitat. In September, 2016, the culverts were removed and replaced with a single 10-foot diameter corrugated metal pipe culvert that was countersunk three feet and filled with stream gravel to simulate natural stream conditions. This completed project now provides fish access into 1.5 miles of stream habitat.

Site rehab was begun in March, 2016. Seventeen volunteers, as part of the Council's Watershed Wide Event, removed invasives, removed excess gravel, and mulched the site.
In spring, 2017, Portland Parks & Recreation planted lupine in the most heavily impacted area mulched in March.
On March 3, 2018, Forty volunteers, as part of the Council's Watershed Wide Event, planted native shrubs on the site rehabbed during the previous March.
