Section 7. Abstract


This project would build 3.5 miles of fence to protect Frazer Creek from grazing cattle. Frazer Creek, which empties to Beaver Creek and then the Methow River, is in very poor condition due to sediment deliver. Keeping cattle out of the creek would lessen sediment delivery and help protect spawning areas of anadromous fish in Beaver Creek and the Methow River, as well as directly improving habitat for fish in Frazer Creek.
