We have received our work permit to dredge the mouth of the Mindemoya River again this year to help the salmon migrate upstream to spawn. It was a very windy day and we will most likely have to dredge a second time later in Sept but at least it gives the fish a better chance at getting up into the stream. Thank you Jon Graham and Central Manitoulin for their help with the backhoe and the MNRF for the permit. We hope this will help with recruitment for future years to come!
The Manitoulin Phragmites group working hard at combating phragmites at the mouth of the Blue Jay Creek using a Truxor machine. This is a costly yet effective process for attacking the invasive plant in the water where pesticides are not an option.
Phragmites removal took place by the White's Point Marsh. There was one new large patch and a smaller patch discovered and removed. The areas that were removed last year look clear with only a couple remaining which were taken down. We anticipate that cutting them under water they will drown out over the next year or so. Thanks to David Hall for all helping with this task!
