We will be planting native containerized plants on the Middle North Fork this fall on Forest Service land. The section of river is upstream from where we have been working this spring/summer and has been redesigned with tons of neat fish habitat enhancement features. You will definitely want to check it out!

Have questions about the field day? Contact the Watershed Restoration Coordinator at lukas@wlrv.org or call 970-493-2075.

Our objective is to restore and enhance geomorphic and ecosystem function in the canyon, including the ongoing re-grading of stream banks and the stabilization of banks by installing erosion control products and planting native trees, grasses and shrubs whose roots naturally armor stream banks and provide habitat for fish & wildlife.
