It’s done – the barrier to fish passage has been removed.
I’m happy to report that the Hanlon Creek Weir Removal Project was completed today!! The middle portion of the weir has been removed and the stream bed rehabilitated. Brook Trout are now able to access an additional 3.6 km of coldwater habitat and the stream has been made more resilient to a warming climate.
Warm thanks to all our volunteers and supporters for your generosity and caring!
