This site washed out the road the previous year from high water levels during the spring freshet. The Township had to complete emergency repairs. Manitoulin Streams tried to help restore the corner bank and provide aquatic and riparian habitat for fish and wildlife. Restoration protected 35 linear meters of shoreline, 158m2 of in-stream habitat and 175m2 of riparian area.
230 cubic meters of vegetated river stone
10 roots wads, 2 stone piles for in-stream habitat
50 square meters of coconut coir matting
50 square meters of grass seed
154 trees and shrubs.
In 2020, we planted an additional 150 trees.
