Derr Tract Sand Pit Stream/Wetland Restoration

A riffle habitat on a restored stretch of the south channel flowing through the Conservancy's property.

A restored stream channel that became a backwater wetland after a natural flood altered the flow of water to a different channel.  This kind of dynamic hydrology is an important part of the natural ecology of these streams and wetlands. 

This photo shows a portion of the restoration constructed in the fall of 2011 (left) next to a portion completed in 2003 (right).
