Project Support: Madison Conservation District

Stream Restoration on Jack Creek

The Madison Conservation District is restoring 2,200 feet of degraded streambank along Jack Creek, a key tributary of the Madison River, on private properties owned by three separate landowners. This project includes:

  • Encouraging the establishment of healthy riparian buffers by planting woody vegetation along 5 prioritized sections of the creek
  • Improving in-stream habitat by reducing sedimentation and providing greater cover
  • Increasing wetland coverage, riparian floodplain, and natural water storage
  • Photo monitoring and watering of riparian plantings
