The McConnell Foundation recently bought this property (2006). Hopefully, they will do something to control this long term problem.
The McConnell Foundation has came through! They have installed a fence around the property, put up "No Trespassing" signs and are installing erosion control measures. I personally would like to say a big "Thank You!" for caring about Churn Creek. Erosion Control

Another winter is upon us and yet the excessive runoff and siltation of Churn Creek will continue. Soon there will be no adequate spawning gravels left for the salmon and steelhead due to the uncontrolled erosion and siltation.

Hopefully this excessive runoff from the property will now be stopped or at least be controlled. It had been allowed to continue for many years. Salmon and steelhead still use Churn Creek for spawning upstream and downstream. The continued siltation of this waterway could cover prime spawning beds for the fish and other aquatic life.
