Project Details

All preliminary requirements to initiate research efforts have been completed. A graduate research assistant was selected and undergraduate technician hired. In March, Sutton and the GRA organized a meeting held in Menominee and gave a presentation entitled “Assessment of LS habitat availability in N. LM tributaries” which introduced the project objectives and methodology to members of the Fox River Natural Resource Damage Assessment, WI and MI DNRs, and USFWS. Following the meeting discussion, the sampling methodology and prioritization of river systems were finalized. Results from sampling will then be used to develop decision tools to determine appropriate LS rehabilitation strategies in each system.
