Promote good landowner stewardship of the subwatershed
LANDOWNER STEWARDSHIP OBJECTIVES: ISSUES
LANDOWNER STEWARDSHIP OBJECTIVES: GENERAL STRATEGY
In addition to the critical Cold-Water Fishery Strategies, landowner stewardship of the creek, riparian areas and wetlands is critical for success on this reach. In partnership with landowners, there are also a large number of potential projects that could be accomplished by the Student Rangers.
The entire reach is bordered by wetlands, particularly on the north side of the creek. Extensive wetlands also surround the three main tributaries, McCrimmon, Pond and T3, which together with the McCrimmon upland areas provide considerable storage during major precipitation and snow melt events, and contribute significant volumes of groundwater discharge to the creek.
Friends of Mill Creek can play an active role in assisting landowners to be good stewards, seeking their support for rehabilitation projects, and partnering with them to sponsor numerous Student Ranger projects.
