Our new Crew Leader has been very busy this past week.

Justin Lewis has walked half way to Earltown on The Waugh’s River.

In doing so he has taken hundreds of GPS waypoints, snapped scores of photos and caught and released over 20 fish.

Over the next few months I will post his photos every week.

 Committee member Dorit Swan and her crew were out planting trees this week. Why you might ask?

Planting trees improves fish habitat and assists with better water management. Carefully sited, native trees and woods can help to maintain and improve water quality and reduce the risk and severity of flooding. With regards to river restoration, riparian trees and woods can provide dappled or broken shade that help reduce water temperatures, benefitting fisheries and other wildlife. Trees can also help stabilise river banks, reducing erosion during flood events. Tree planting is a priority to good river restoration.

Perry Swan and the Millbrook First Nation fisheries representatives have held several discussions on how both of groups could work more closely together.

Following today’s meeting in  Truro it was agreed that this year’s Annual River Walk held in August and hosted by The North Shore River  Restoration Association will be co-hosted by the Millbrook First Nation.

In the attached photo are Perry Swan, Adrian Gloade, Michelle Gloade and Andrew Johnson.

More information will be available soon and www.riverwork.ca  is the place to be to be kept informed.
