2018 - Three-Mile Creek

The WATS 5350 Spring 2018 class focused on Three Mile Creek, draining the north-end of the Wellsvilles. The project was envisioned by our local US Forest Service partner Paul Chase (Fisheries Biologist) to address habitat degradation and incision. The purpose of the project was to create conditions (with beaver dam analogues) favorable to facilitate beaver translocation.
