Managing and protecting these lands is not always enough. The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs have goals to restore habitats that will lead to productive, harvestable populations of fish and wildlife. Restoration actions are needed to recover severely degraded habitats in an acceptable timeline. Restoration projects are time consuming, expensive, and risky, but they are also rewarding through hard work and careful planning. These project can be small, such as a fencing or tree planting project completed in hours or days, or large, such as the Oxbow dredge mining restoration project, which took eight years to complete. The Tribes have a project tracker database that tracks these projects. See our Project Tracker Database.
