On Thursday, November 2, 2023, representatives from SYRCL, Cramer Fish Sciences, and cbec led a public outreach meeting at the Upper Long Bar Restoration Project, outlining for those in attendance the history of the project, a general overview of the pre-project monitoring and what the project will encompass, and the desired outcomes of the finished project.
In 2017, SYRCL was funded to work on the Long Bar Restoration Project. The project is funded by the the Wildlife Conservation Board through their Streamflow Enhancement Program and SYRCL works in partnership with cbec, Cramer Fish Sciences, the private landowners, 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 currently in process.
