River Walk Habitat Restoration Final Report

Posted on August 4, 2014

Herpetological Resource and Management, LLC (HRM) was contracted by the Community Foundation of St. Clair County to conduct wildlife monitoring and assist in habitat restoration targeting amphibian, reptile, bird, and aquatic macroinvertebrate species along the Blue Water River Walk. Surveys were conducted in 2011, 2012, and 2013 to establish baseline data of species richness, abundance, and distribution.

The Blue Water River Walk restoration included the addition of wildlife habitat as well as improvement of overall site conditions and recreational features for the public. The construction of habitat features began in fall 2012 and was completed in fall 2013. Monitoring was completed in late spring 2014 to evaluate the site immediately following restoration.

HRM has provided the Community Foundation with a complete report of their findings from start to finish, indicating a significant increase in wildlife habitat along the River Walk with potential for even more growth in the future.
