A volunteer firefighter with the Bald Hills Fire District must repair damage done to important salmon habitat near the Nisqually River after logging without a permit and cutting trees in protected buffer zones. The work was done where Lackamas Creek empties into the Nisqually River. "I've seen so many salmon in this creek, you could walk across them. Steelhead, chum, kings. All of them come up this creek at one time or another," said neighbor Brad Whiting. Whiting has lived by Lackamas Creek for 51 of his 52 years. His father and daughters live there, too.
