Due to illness, Dan Kane will NOT be able to meet us at the job site this weekend. It will happen on the 1st or 3rd weekend of November. I'll keep you posted.
Dan Kane of the Boone Co. Conservation District will be meeting any interested ISA members at the site of their ISA funded stream barb project. He's very excited and grateful for our support, and wants to keep the membership in the loop as to how their money is spent. The project should take place in early to mid November, and he wants us to see the "before" condition at the site. He will explain how it got this way, and what will be done to fix the problem. Some barbs were installed this summer just downstream of our site, so we can get a preview, too.
He's agreed to do it on the weekend so as many members as possible can make it, so let's have a good showing! We will be meeting Dan at the Distillery Road Park entrance at 9:00, but I'm thinking breakfast at Ned's on State St/US20 between Rockford and Belvidere should come first, say 7:30 a.m. Fishing in the park area afterwards is NOT an option, as it will officially be closed to the public for bow hunting. That doesn't mean you can't bring the waders and head into Cherry Valley or Belvidere. Please let me know if you'll be joining us!
PS I need a volunteer to take plenty of "before" pics.
