- replacing undersized and poorly placed culverts with larger, better aligned culverts that will maintain fish passage and restore channel morphology
- planting pine seedlings under the forest canopy on 15 acres of riparian forest to shade streams and eventually act as a source of woody material for the streams
- stabilizing eroding banks to reduce impacts on water quality
Climate Change Impacts
Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest staff considered their planned restoration actions and considered whether they would contribute to climate change adaptation. In many cases, they were able to identify substantial adaptation benefits for the work they had planned. Some of the adaptation actions that stand out in this project include:
1.3. Maintain or restore riparian areas.
7.2. Maintain and create habitat corridors through reforestation or restoration.
