EVENT DETAILS

Fish-Friendly Habitat & Stream Crossings

There are many ways to improve stream habitat features on your land. Learn several of these strategies for ecosystem health, including how to build a stream crossing that benefits wildlife.  

Properly built stream crossings are important for both fish and wildlife to move underneath, and for people and equipment to cross over. Participants will see different types of crossings, including an arched culvert with a natural rocky bottom that benefits fish and macroinvertebrates. We will review other ways to improve stream habitat as well, such as managing riparian buffers to keep stream temperatures cool and increase inputs of woody material.

Guest speakers will be from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, Vermont Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Butternut Hollow Forestry. Light refreshments provided. Funding is provided through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
 
DATE: Thursday, September 15 (Rain date: September 23)
