WOLF RUN ASSOCIATION, INC: Black Earth Creek Streambank Improvement

Purpose

Wolf Run Association, Inc. will undertake a River Management project on the Black Earth Creek. Project deliverables are as follows: 1.) Improve fish habitat and water quality by stabilizing eroding banks, narrowing the stream channel (thereby increasing velocity and oxygenation), improve substrate, and increase connectivity with floodplain on \00BD mile of BEC, 2.) Improve scenic and recreational values and public access along Black Earth Creek in concert with the Wolf permanent conservation easement and multi-use trail on the eastern side of the stream, 3.) Enhance outdoor educational opportunities in the watershed, 4.) Add to the regional economy by extending a high quality resource and the capacity for more users, 5.) Install structures as outlined in the grant application, cost estimate tables, 8.) Provide pre-restoration and post-restoration photos taken at several locations on each stream.
