In September 2016 we undertook a bioengineering project in collaboration with the Alberta Government's Backcountry Trails Flood Rehabilitation Team (BTFR) at the location of a new bridge on Meadow Creek.
Meadow Creek is home to some of the few remaining Westslope Cutthroat Trout populations in Alberta.
These fish thrive in cold and clean water and they are sensitive to sediment being washed into streams.
A big Thank You to all the volunteers who came out on a beautiful Saturday to plant the willows! We got so much done that day and are looking forward to seeing the willows grow next year. Photos are attached to this email.
Thank you also to the Land Stewardship Centre, who generously funded this project to help to improve water quality and fish habitat in the Ghost.
