Kiap-TU-Wish Habitat Projects

Conserve. Protect. Restore.

image_stream1If We Don’t, Who Will?

The coldwater resources and fisheries in our area respond quickly and extraordinarily well to straightforward techniques to control erosion, reconnect the floodplain, and improve in-stream habitat. These efforts only scratch the surface of the need and potential for the region, though, and demonstrated the potential positive impact from a regional restoration effort. We are hard at work to greatly increase the amount of watershed restoration activity in the western Wisconsin area.

Kiap-TU-Wish and Twin Cities TU, along with other partners also hope to foster the development of a regional identity focused on the abundance of free-flowing coldwater streams, their contribution to region, and their reliance on good stewardship.

Wisconsin TU is also working with partners to prioritize watersheds in our region based on the restoration potential and resource benefit, and develop a staged strategy for planning and implementation. They are working to build broad community support for immediate restoration work and long-term sustainable management, as well as to help the region capitalize on the economic opportunities that a restored landscape would offer. Kiap-TU-Wish has done stream restoration projects on the Willow, Kinnickinnic, South Fork of the Kinnickinnic, Parker Creek, Rush River, Tiffany, Eau Galle and Pine Creek, to name a few. The most recent projects have been habitat improvements on Pine Creek near Maiden Rock, and the Trimbelle River near River Falls.
