Thank you to everyone that came out to help and for the wonderful chili, snacks and cookies provided by Leslie Fields, Sue Moggy and St. Paul’s Anglican Church. A special thank you goes out to the Hutton Family who have supported this project from the beginning and have allowed us to use their garage as a staging area to hold this wonderful grass roots event. Over the years 40,000 eyed brook trout eggs have been stocked into Norton’s Creek in order to restore this once historical brook trout creek.
Recent electrofishing studies by College Boreal have shown that brook trout are once again surviving in this restored stream due to these community efforts. Thank you also to the MNRF Hills Lake Hatchery in Englehart for the supplying the brook trout eggs over the years.
