We have live-streamed the drama of a high-altitude goose nest (65′ up in a tree!) and the subsequent hatching of the eggs–and the big leap the goslings took to get to the ground. Now, we bring you: Clear Creek. This multi-year project will restore not only water quantity but also improve water quality, adding river length to decrease sediment load, and remove fish barriers that have heretofore inhibited spawning. We will be raising the stream bed, too, reconnecting it with its historic flood plane and adding space for the river to flood in high-water events.
Truly, this is going to be a remarkable transformation for the 2.8 miles of Clear Creek that flow through Woodson Ranch.
We hope you enjoy watching the big-iron as the contractors (R.E. Miller & Sons) do their work on behalf of fish, wildlife, and people.
If you enjoy watching the nesting activity, consider making a donation to Ruby Habitat Foundation by clicking here. These cameras are not inexpensive, the installation is complicated, and the streaming service costs money. We thank you in advance!
By the way–if you need to hire experts to help you with similar projects on your own property, you should talk to the good folks at Ranch Resources, located in Sheridan, MT. We employ them for everything from land stewardship questions to questions about our heritage apple orchard to installing live-streaming webcams. They are nothing short of wizards.
Should you have questions or comments, feel free to direct them to our Outreach Coordinator, Dave Delisi.
