Revegetation & Fencing on North Burnt Fork Creek
The Water Forum worked with a private ranch owner to address the erosion occurring on North Burnt Fork Creek, which was experiencing over-sedimentation and nutrient excess.
In 2020, a livestock fence was installed around a section of the stream, with a water gap and two cattle crossings. Other work done included an off-stream watering system and a riparian planting, with 61 nursery seedlings being established on the north side of the stream.
In 2021, an additional 70 nursery plants were established on both banks, along with 300 willow cuttings. Furthermore, the water gap and crossings were reinforced with gravel and fabric.
