Father Nature Landscapes, one of our Corporate Partners for Conservation, recently revisited Turkey Creek for the final round of plantings on the newly formed streambank following our removal of Old Shadow Lake Dam.
Daniel McCurry and his crew at Father Nature have worked tirelessly on this difficult project, and will have planted nearly 100 native plants and trees along the newly established streambank. Although this restoration has been challenging at times, Daniel has shown his expertise and been a huge help in our efforts to revitalize Turkey Creek. Thank you Father Nature Landscapes for being an outstanding partner not just in our dam removal work, but in all our conservation projects.
This year, we look forward to continuing our restoration work at the Turkey Creek dam removal site, one of our most successful projects to date, which opened up an additional half mile of habitat for the endangered vermilion darter – a fish that before this project only had about seven miles of habitat in the world.
