Students improving trout habitat in Dover Plains
Monday, June 30, 2014
Dover High school students are getting down in the dirt and mud to restore the banks of a local stream and at the same time learn about water quality protection. They are planting streamside vegetation and stabilizing eroding banks along Seven Wells Brook, a cold-water stream that is home to native brook trout, in Dover Plains, New York.
This is made possible due to a $4,800 grant from Iroquois Gas Transmission System and a $1,800 grant from Northeast Dutchess Fund of the Berkshire Taconic Foundation. The grants were awarded to the Housatonic Valley Association (HVA).
