Stream restoration work

Izaak Walton is a conservation organization first and foremost. One of our chief goals is taking care of our streams. This includes radically changing them when necessary. The pictured restoration work is being done near the club presently, and it includes changing the course of the stream in places to add more curves, as well as adding structure that slows erosion, and changing the banks to ease flooding problems. It is very expensive work. York Izaak Walton #67 probably spends over a million and a half dollars a year on average doing it. Luckily most of that money comes from state and federal grants.
