Duffield Peninsula: Duffield Creek & Adams Creek Watersheds HYDROLOGIC CONDITION ASSESSMENT & WATERSHED RESTORATION PLAN
The USFS Sitka Ranger District initiated this Duffield Peninsula Watershed Restoration Plan to collect, summarize and analyze both existing and new data in order to describe the existing condition of this watershed. This information will also be used to compare existing conditions to the desired future condition (DFC), as outlined in the Tongass Forest Plan (USDA Forest Service 1997), and to provide a detailed management strategy to accelerate movement toward DFCs. Restoration activities will incorporate the biodiversity, landscape, ecological/ geological characterization, forest vegetation, old-growth diversity, wildlife habitat, riparian and aquatic habitat, and human use of the area. The information is organized and summarized to provide guidance for project planners and the public. The Duffield Peninsula Hydrologic Condition Assessment and Watershed Restoration Plan were designed to be a tool to help managers improve watershed and stream channel conditions.
