Atlantic Salmon Conservation Stabilization

Recipient: Trout Unlimited Prince County
Approved Amount: $10,600

To replace a stream crossing which is washing out repeatedly, causing heavy sediment loads to enter the stream will be replaced. Two laneways which are contributing to the silt load will also be repaired in this area. The beaver problems which have long plagued the Kennedy Creek will be worked on. TUC Prince County Chapter has developed a beaver management plan which has been submitted to the Fish and Wildlife Division. This is a long term for the management of the beaver problem within the watershed. Tree planting will be carried out to increase the riparian zone in areas where it is needed, and educational measures will be continued with the focus on landowners. The target of these measures will be to work on increasing the buffer zone in the areas where land use issues are the biggest concern.
