Our SWVT Chapter has been working with the US Forest Service and Poultney Mettawee Natural Resources Conservation District on restoring fish habitat in the Mettawee River. Working on one section at a time, the group has successfully un-channelized and stabilized sections of the river, as well as created new fish habitat through the placement of tree, root wad, and stone structures.
We will be continuing our on-going collaboration with this effort, so please check back often for volunteer opportunities!
