Although the Ohop Valley Restoration Project is far from done, there is already a lot to celebrate!
- So far, 2.4 miles of new channel have been constructed, representing a 50% increase in stream habitat
- Over 1,000 logs have been placed to create habitat for fish, birds, amphibians and other animals
- Around 10,000 organisms have been moved and documented during 2 fish-out events
- Over 75,400 native trees and shrubs have been installed since 2009
- Around 200 acres of preserved in perpetuity
- Funding and partnerships have come from 15 different organizations!
