Habitat Restoration

The courses of the Sackville River and its feeder streams have been modified and straightened over the years. This has produced long stretches where the depth is uniform.

To support a healthy, diverse aquatic community, a river course must include areas that vary in current speed, depth and bottom composition.

  • Deep pools provide 

    • Shelter​ from predators

    • An unfrozen refuge in winter

  • Areas of gravel bottom are required by trout and salmon for spawning beds


Our restoration activities are intended to mitigate past damage to the Sackville River habitat by helping the river return to as natural a state as possible.
