Wilson Creek Watershed Improvement Project, Rugby, VA

This project will reduce chronic erosion and sedimentation coming from horse trails, protecting 15 stream miles downstream from the crossings. It will also protect headwater seeps from trampling erosion, and allow 300 acres of riparian vegetation to grow, further shading the stream and filtering field runoff. Riparian restoration will favor native red spruce, which in turn will provide a cool, moist micro-climate consistent with maintaining wild Brook Trout streams. The project cost is $120,000 and the estimated socioeconomic benefit is $8.2 million.
