In 2017 SYRCL was funded to work on the Long Bar Restoration Project. The project is funded by the USFWS through the Anadromous Fish Restoration Program and SYRCL works in partnership with cbec, Cramer Fish Sciences, the private land owners, and mining company SRI on the Project. The intent of the project is to restore at least 40 acres of floodplain habitat and nearly one mile of off channel habitat at the downstream end of Long Bar. This will include floodplain lowering, side channel enhancement, riparian planting, and large woody debris placement. Monitoring efforts and planning documents are in process and we expect to hold public stakeholder meetings in 2018.
Please stay tuned for more information about this exciting project!
