M’Chigeeng Creek Rehabiliation

A fabulous job completed by Lakeview students, two youth ranger groups and Manitoulin Streams. Large and mid size boulders, spawning gravel and garbage removal was completed the week of Aug 18, 2014.

All work was done by hand and not with the complete cooperation of the weather, but a job well done! This Community now awaits the fall salmon spawning in this rehabilitated habitat. A big thanks to Bob Florean for all his help with this project!
