Volunteers Needed for Stream Restoration Workday at Falls Brook

Thanks to a team of conservation partners, an undersized culvert at Hale Hill Road in Swanzey has just been replaced with a new, flood-resilient and wildlife-friendly open-bottom arch crossing. This exciting stream restoration project will re-connect more than 20 miles of stream habitat for wild brook trout, dace and other aquatic wildlife. The final step is to re-vegetate the shoreline of Falls Brook nearest the construction site with native, locally grown, edible plants.
