The Summer Crew for 2016 and their new supervisor are busy at work on our project for this year.

We started this year with a audit of the river around areas where we had done work over the past 2 years. Structures requiring maintenance were identified and areas where new work was required were flagged . Dana, Frank and I did an inventory of our equipment and our power tools were serviced for safe and proper operation.

In late June we sent Dana and Andee to a 3 day workshop sponsored by Clean Nova Scotia which was held at Dalhousie in Truro. The whole crew dad a 1 day hands on workshop with Adopt A Stream in Pictou centered around proper structure building and placement.

Last week we were pleased to have Charles Macinnis , a consultant with Adopt A Stream and Nick Macinnis from Adopt A Stream spend a day on the river with Frank and I and the crew setting out a detailed work plan for the year. We really appreciate their expert advise.

Its now warm and hot days on the river for the crew completing the tasks at hand.
