We started 2018 with our yearly spring clean-up. As always this is a family friendly workday where anyone of any physical ability can contribute. This year the clean up was lite as massive flows on the Menomonee pushed a lot of the normal garbage onto the riverbanks, or downstream.


Our May workday followed up on the workday from October 2017; we returned to Rosenow Creek to enhance the stream in the new areas of public access. The following week we traveled North to the Onion River to remove widow makers, and log jams that a windy winter created.


In June we traveled to the Driftless and partnered with Blackhawk TU, Southern TU, Lakeshore TU, Coulee TU, and a very cooperative property owner who is working to open more Driftless waters to fishing. We had a large presense, and we were able to remove all of the storm debris along the stream for nearly a mile on both sides, and the log jams in the water.


The rest of the year we worked in our own territory improving home waters that had a focus on our DNR adopted stream Bluff Creek in Walworth County, and the habitat gains we have realized on Scuppernong.


In total we contributed 543 man hours (not counting driving) to restoring streams in Wisconsin.
