Join Trout Unlimited Canada (TUC) in our 2022 riparian rehabilitation activities in the Waiparous Creek Watershed.

***REGISTRATION HERE***

WHY?

The Waiparous Creek watershed is critical habitat for Bull Trout and Westslope Cutthroat Trout – and both of these populations are listed as “threatened” under the federal Species at Risk Act. As part of TUC’s ongoing efforts to recover these fishes, we are working towards habitat improvements in the Waiparous Creek watershed. These efforts are aimed at decreasing sedimentation (muddy run-off from trails and bare ground), improving riparian (shoreline) health, and improving connectivity between habitats. Volunteers will contribute to the project by helping with direct on-the-ground improvements.

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?

Volunteers will harvest and plant live willow stakes, pull noxious weeds, and distribute woody debris. These bioengineering efforts will help stabilize streambanks and vegetate restoration areas, and improve habitat for native species.

WHEN?

The volunteer events will take place on Friday May 27th, and Saturday, May 28th from 09:00 to 15:00

WHERE?

Meet at the Waiparous Creek PRA staging area in the Ghost PLUZ: https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Waiparous+Creek+ATV+Staging+Area/@51.3699661,-114.9887441,18.25z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x5376d2d179d57e37:0xbd45da29c31de1ea!8m2!3d51.3698221!4d-114.9897686?hl=en&authuser=0
