Cowlitz Conservation District has been awarded a $237,550 grant to improve Delameter Creek fish habitat.

The district will use the grant to place large logs and tree root wads in about 3 miles of Delameter Creek, which flows into the Cowlitz the Castle Rock area. The wood will slow the river and create more places for salmon to rest, hide from predators and feed, according to a news release from the Washington Salmon Recovery Funding Board. The district also will plant trees on the creek banks.

The creek is used by coho and chum salmon and steelhead, all of which are listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act.

The grant is part of $42 million in funding statewide announced Thursday.
