In 2014, TSF made a grant to Trout Unlimited and Seneca Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited to stabilize stream banks and improve habitat on Little Beaver Creek (MD). The project was completed in the summer of 2015. The before and after pictures are dramatic and are available on our picture gallery.
Area partners have worked together since 2003 to repair stream habitat and turn Beaver Creek into Maryland’s premier limestone wild trout fishery.
The Little Beaver Creek project is also an excellent example of multiple interested groups working together including funds from the Environmental Quality Improvement Program (EQIP) funded by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and Trout and Salmon Foundation, support from the local landowner, and significant amounts of volunteer labor.
