Here are the details on the upcoming project on Cooper Creek. We will plan to meet on site at 9AM (directions are below) and do some much needed maintenance work on a number of existing stream structures. This will primarily involve the refilling the log cribs with rock and removing branches and other debris that are impacting the structures. We won’t be doing any placement of new logs for this workday so it should be a relatively easy morning. Jim Wentworth, wildlife biologist with the Forest Service, will bring a fish shocker and do a sampling demonstration at the end (11:30) so the scouts can see some of the fish species in Cooper Creek and learn how we sample streams. We will wrap up around 12-12:30 for lunch.
We will meet at a large roadside pull-off on Cooper Creek Road (FS 33). To reach the site, turn on Cooper Creek Road across from the entrance to Lake Winfield Scott on GA Highway 180 and go 5.5 miles to the meeting site. It is approximately ½ mile past a large camping area along the creek.
