Cool Whychus River Re-route Video 

Cool time lapse video provided by Deschutes Land Trust showing how crews used 10,000 cubic cards of dirt, rock and debris to restore Whychus Creek (formerly Squaw Creek) to its original flood plain channel through Camp Polk meadow.

Cool time lapse videos provided by Deschutes Land Trust showing how crews used 10,000 cubic cards of dirt, rock and debris to restore Whychus Creek (formerly Squaw Creek) to its original flood plain channel through Camp Polk meadow. The event which occurred on Tuesday is the culmination of 15 years of collaborative restoration work that involved multiple groups and public agencies and spearheaded by the Deschutes Land Trust, Upper Deschutes Watershed Council and the Forest Service.

The first video shows the damning of the Army Corps diversion channel, restoring the creek to its original floodplain path. The second shows an alternate angle of the restored channel as water trickles in.
