Project Description: 
This project will restore a stream and riparian wetland on a parcel purchased in 2014 through a grant from MNRCP. Restoration work will focus on discontinuation of the access road over the stream and riparian wetlands through removal of the culvert and surrounding fill, and stabilization and revegetation of this corridor. Woody debris, excess fill, and the remains of a silt fence will be removed. The breach at the base of the north ditch will be sealed and the basin regraded to avoid erosion into the stream. An alternate access to the property will be created to avoid the restored wetland areas.
