Cleveland Creek

Cleveland Creek possesses some of the best remaining salmon and steelhead habitat in the Siulslaw National Forest area. Western Rivers Conservancy protected a critical reach of this stream and bolstered hopes for the long-term survival of Oregon's coastal coho and steelhead populations.
