Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program



Restoration of Riparian Corridors
  • Stream bank stabilization
  • Establishment of riparian buffers through native plantings of tree and shrubs
  • Aquatic habitat restoration

Using Christmas trees anchored into the banks, we can achieve a stable bank and reduce the amount of sediment entering the stream
Christmas Tree Bank Stablization
Accelerated Stream Channel
Accelerated stream channel adjustment is one of many problems plaguing Vermont Rivers due to current and past manipulations in river corridors. The result of these adjustments, such as severe erosion, can cause an increase of sediment and nutrients which, in excess, degrades aquatic habitat
Constructed structures like this J-Vane, help to create excellent pool habitat for trout as well as provide bank protection down stream

Red Osier Dogwood
Red Osier Dogwood planted on the stream bank is a cost effective way to stabilize eroding banks and provide good wildlife cover
Brown Trout, like the one below, can begin to reproduce and thrive where stream habitat has been enhanced or restored.
