Document Description
The Mad River Floodplain Enhancement Project includes two primary components - restoration of floodplain habitat to benefit fish and wildlife and public access improvements, including a nature study trail and viewing areas. The project will decommission and revegetate 4.25 acres of infrastructure in the floodplain to create wetlands, riparian habitat, and an off-channel habitat complex for anadromous salmonids. The project's public access amenities will be constructed to comply with Americans with Disability Act and accessed from the paved School Road Trail to a new river overlook, multiple interpretive and bench resting sites.
