Restoration of Spawning and Rearing Habitat, Including Acessibility, for Atlantic Salmon in the West

Recipient: Central Queens Branch of the PEI Wildlife Federation
Approved Amount: $19,000

CQWF has cleaned out an existing sediment trap, built 15 brushmats, cleared alders and other obstructions from 3.5 km of stream, and planted 1,780 native trees and shrubs.  Six logs have been added to stream reaches flushed of sediment last year.  Education and outreach efforts have been successful with several volunteer events and a new website.
