Goldsborough Creek | Oakland Bay

The Goldsborough-McLane Watershed is in an area of Mason County experiencing rapid urban growth, with Goldsborough creek itself flowing through downtown Shelton and into Oakland Bay. Restoration projects along Goldsborough Creek have included removal of a dam, revegetation of the dam site, installation of weirs for salmon, and rehabilitation of riparian forestland. Malaney Creek is another salmon-bearing stream that flows into Oakland Bay from the opposite shore. Efforts are being made to preserve intact marine shoreline, restore riparian forests and establish educational facilities on the property.
