Moosehorn Creek Restoration
Our restoration crew spent much of the summer working on restoring a 900 meter linear section of severely degraded riparian area along Moosehorn Creek near Norton. The KWRC obtained a watercourse alteration permit from the NB Department of Environment which permitted us to back-slope and stabilize 90 meters of river bank and build a stabilized fording site. The crew also installed two duck boxes and four songbird boxes and planted approximately 3000 trees of various species.
The KWRC would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to the landowner, Bill Rodgers, for working with us to restore this site to improve salmonid habitat and help reduce stream temperatures in the Moosehorn system. We also wish to thank the following sponsors for their support: Government of Canada, Government of New Brunswick, Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation, NB Wildlife Trust Fund and the Village of Norton.
