Habitat Restoration Project starts TOMORROW!

We are excited to announce that the habitat restoration work on the lower Cheticamp River is scheduled to begin tomorrow! Here are some lovely before pictures of the Cheticamp River taken by Roman Buchhofer. Here is the link to his webpage: http://romanbuchhofer.com/ 

With help from Parks Canada, our partner on this project, we will be installing instream structures that are designed to encourage the main channel of the river to gradually narrow and deepen. This is important as there are sections along the lower Cheticamp River where the main channel has become severely over-widened and fish passage problems result during periods of low flow. Human impacts, including past agriculture and logging, as well as the placement and design of former bridges, contributed to the over-widening.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or if you would like additional information, about this exciting project.
