Ackinclose Creek Collaboration with Landowner

June 2009

This is the happy case of a caring landowner allowing heavy machinery on his land to improve fish habitat in a stream passing through his property.  Work has commenced during the "fish window" when stream levels are at their lowest, and fish are elsewhere (or are being actively salvaged for relocation).

This makes it official ...

The machine is moving so fast, the photographer could hardly keep up.

A major effort! It will look better when it's done.
