Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, in partnership with the US Fish and Wildlife’s Lower Great Lakes Office, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, and Wyoming County,  is kicking off a restoration project to eliminate an impassable barrier and enhance habitat for native or naturalized Eastern Brook Trout. This project is the culmination of over 7 years of planning, inventory, design, and partnership to increase the number of stream miles as well as improve the quality of habitat available to native aquatic species. Located within a headwater tributary of the Niagara River watershed, this project will install a new culvert that is adequately sized for stream volumes, properly embedded, and in alignment with the stream channel. We will construct in-stream habitat features including lunker boxes and grade control structures. Mobilization for this project kicks off on May 20, 2022 and is accompanied by a virtual campaign to raise awareness and support for headwater stream conservation in Western New York throughout June of 2022.
