Join us for another year of hands-on restoration along Silvester Creek. We need your help to continue to improve streamside habitat for threatened westslope cutthroat trout! These native trout require cold clean water to survive. Improving riparian areas will help to limit sediment inputs, create overhead cover to reduce stream heating and improve habitat complexity along the banks. We will be meeting at the Bragg Creek Community Center then carpooling (as much as possible) to the site. The day will start with the harvesting of willows in nearby areas which will then be planted in the afternoon.
What to bring: clothes for all types of weather, sturdy footwear (rubber boots recommended), warm gloves, water, a shovel , loppers, planting bar and pruning shears (if you have). Lunch will be provided to registered participants so please let us know of any dietary restrictions.
