What does it take to remove a dam and restore a wetland? A lot of science, passion, and hard work. And some very muddy boots! Join us to learn about our recent work to remove a dam on a farm near Lake Champlain and restore a wetland, as well as the stream and floodplain downstream. We will explore the site and the methods used to improve the health of Crooked Creek and support cleaner water in Lake Champlain.
