Trout Stream Restoration

As you may know, Bridgewater Township is partnered with and supporting St. Olaf college and the Cannon River Watershed Project in their work on the Rice Creek Assessment Project. Rice Creek is one of our important natural resources and one that we, the Cities of Dundas and Northfield have special interest in.  This presentation (below) will help inform our efforts to protect this fragile resource. This is a free and open presentation.


Trout Stream Restoration

Dr. Michael Osterholm, epidemiologist and trout enthusiast, will share the story of rehabilitating three trout streams on his Prairie Song Farm in Iowa. Until 2002 the streams were degraded by severe bank erosion and a lack of in-stream cover. Since that time, an extensive effort was made to enhance stream habitat, increase fish and prey populations, and improve spawning sites. This presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of issues surrounding coldwater stream improvement. Lessons learned will inform restoration efforts on our local trout stream, Rice Creek.

St. Olaf College, Regents Hall, Room 150
Free and open to the public
