Whiskeytown Logging Road Removal Project
Watershed Restoration and Logging Road

Removal in the Paige Bar Demonstration Watershed:

Whiskeytown National Recreation Area

In 1996, the National Park Service and a Northern California community college initiated a demonstration watershed restoration project.  The project was coordinated by John McCullah, President of Salix Applied Earthcare and instructor of the Shasta College Watershed Restoration Practicum.  The following web pages will take you step by step through the process of developing and implementing a logging road decommissioning project.


Award Winning Project

In 1999, Whiskeytown NRA and Shasta College received an environmental conservation award from the National Park Foundation for their cooperative watershed restoration partnership.
