March 2019 Update
Crow Creek Update:
I spoke with the project coordinator from Buffalo Niagara River Keeper, and
he anticipates that the final design will be signed off by the US Fish and
Wildlife Service by the end of March. It looks like a 10-foot box culvert
was selected based on the engineering modeling that was done over the
fall/winter. If all goes well, construction would begin in July/August. We
will be building five “Lunker” structures for the
project and will probably do some tree plantings in the fall. I will
provide updates as I receive them.
We have three interested landowners on the East Koy
and Wiscoy for the 2020 “Trees for Tribs” program. The DEC and I are going
to meet with them and do a site survey in April.
