Stillwater Creek, running thru the college, is a highly impacted salmonid stream that has been gravel mined, lined with tires and gabion baskets (circa 1979).  Now incised over    25-ft, Stillwater represents a typical “urbanized/hyrdomodified” stream system that will provide a living laboratory for developing repair and restoration strategies.
