2017 Willow Planting
Wheeler and Wylie Brook Willow 5/23/2017
TU members from the Chenango Valley and Al Hazzard Chapters recently planted 500 willows on Wheeler and Wylie Brooks at sites where culverts were recently replaced. The culvert replacements were part of a stream enhancement project carried out to provide connectivity of stream segments that were previously impassable by fish and was managed jointly by the NYSDEC and US Fish and Wildlife Service. The culverts were hemispherical with a natural stream bed bottom. The objective of these structures was to extend the habitat and improve access to spawning areas for native brook trout.
