It's been a busy month and a half! We have been working in Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory on Smith Bay Creek. A microburst during the Cultural Pow Wow Festival in 2019 caused severe damage to trees along the creek blocking fish migration to spawning areas. Manitoulin Streams has been working on removing the felled trees and using them to create fish habitat; grading eroding shoreline to prevent erosion and sedimentation over spawning habitat; installing boulder clusters; adding additional spawning gravel and creating pools and riffle areas to improve fish habitat. We have also been working with Wasse-Abin Junior School, Pontiac School and Wiikwemkoong high school planting trees and shrubs to help stabilize the shoreline banks (pictures to follow). #manitoulinstreams, #wiikwemkoong, #streamrestoration, #wikwemikongtourism, #wiikwemkoongboardofeducation, #everychildmatters
