Streambank Erosion Control / Spawning Habitat Preservation

Here you see scouts from the Harrison Boy Scout Troop planting trees at site C.

In May of 2006 SFT volunteers worked with Tip of The Mitt Watershed Council staff to begin restoration of eroding streambanks at important sturgeon spawning sites along the Upper Black River. Jennifer Gelb, Restoration Ecologist and Valerie Olinik-Damstra, Watershed Coordinator trained volunteer leaders in planting trees and installing willow cuttings.

Mike Moreau from the Upper Black River Restoration Committee donated hundreds of small trees, and members from the Black Lake Association assisted SFT members and volunteers in planting many trees.

With the continued support of Huron Pines RC&D and the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, we will continue to seek grant funding to implement restoration measures.

Thank you all!!!
