Murray Creek Stream Rehabilitation Project

The Murray Creek project was designed to bring water stewardship planning to the resident farms and ranches adjacent to this important feeder stream to the Nechako River. In partnership with area ranchers, environmental farm planning programs and provincial funding agencies we are developing prescriptions to repair long term damage to Murray Creek. Off channel watering, fencing cattle out of the stream and replanting of the riparian zones are moving this stream back to productivity and setting the example for the region. Our success on this stream has moved a new society to form to bring the same program to the remaining 31 streams within the Vanderhoof Agricultural community.
