The Brown’s Creek Watershed District recently completed two stream rehabilitation projects in their effort to improve the cold-water fishery of their namesake. A third stream project in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources is also currently underway.

Each of these projects addresses a distinctly different but common impairment of Minnesota streams.  The presentation will touch on the impairments, solutions, funding, metrics of success and lessons learned. All are welcome!
