Edelweiss Farms Streambank Restoration Complete

The work to stabilize 1,980 feet of streambank near the Village of Fillmore, NY is complete. This $284K project was supported by a grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The project stabilized the bank and established a riparian buffer. As a result of this effort, .67 acres of valuable farmland will be preserved annually and 192 tons of sediment will no longer have to be dredged from the river each year.   Thank you to all the volunteers who came to plant trees on two Saturdays in June!
