Over the past year, we have restored one third of a mile of Crooked Creek in Colchester, supporting this small watershed’s return to forest and natural stream flow. We removed a dam and piloted process-based restoration methods in the stream. VLT’s ecologist and some of the many partners who contributed to this effort will share details and their perspectives about working with this unique headwater system. This event will be followed by a tour of the site on October 13.
