Mike Brownlee and the WestLand Panel


This biologist is with federal fisheries and specializes in habitat impacts caused by logging. He reveals how research at Carnation Creek (WestLand show 2 year 1) is now becoming part of fish/forest logging guidelines and calls for retention of large organic- debris along streams. Brownlee takes the WestLand camera on a field trip and shows the role of big wood in building stream complexity. Note: This is the direct link between Carnation Creek research and the present Forest Practices Code which led to Forest Renewal and then Watershed Restoration. The fish/forest guidelines grew out of early research mostly at Car. Cr. And in time the guidelines became basis for the Code.
