More InformationShow full item record
This thesis studies the life cycle needs of salmon and asks the question, how can we restore a river to be viable for salmon habitat as well as promote positive human interaction? As an indicator species, salmon are essential to the health of their surrounding environment as well as an indicator of water quality. This research seeks to answer this question by looking at salmon population changes, lifecycles, habitat needs, habitat disturbances, and public river interaction opportunities. The results of this study discuss how design interventions can both promote healthy salmon habitat and human interaction with the river and its corridor. This study shall conclude with a landscape master plan depicting these program elements.
