<< Back to project list

Members of the Beaver River Watershed Initiative over the last 4 years, with the financial assistance of both the Lake Huron Georgian Bay Community Initiative and the Town of Blue Mountains, have conducted a 1 year water sampling/water quality analysis (with field technicians provided from Grey Sauble Conservation Authority) and a Electrofishing Survey (with field technicians from Trout Unlimited Canada) to determine the overall health of the Little Beaver River. From the results of these studies and with the permission of MNRF and TOBM, The Beaver River watershed Initiative is co funding, with our various donor partners ,the installation of a Fishculvert system, during summer of 2022, at the old 19 century rail crossing abutment. This will finally allow the movement of fish from the mouth of the river to its headwaters and tributaries. Please see the article in both and the Toronto Star by searching "Fish Culvert Project Thornbury".
