Marys River in Nevada has historically supported threatened Lahontan cuttroat trout, but the forest cover on the river has been drastically reduced due to excessive livestock grazing. Restoring four stream miles of the riparian hardwood forest through the planting of 10,332 aspen, alder and chokecherry will to help rebuild the trout population. Reestablishing the forest cover will help stabilize streambanks, maintain low water temperatures and increase species diversity. This project was also supported by the Bureau of Land Management, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Forest Service and many volunteers.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
