Project Restoring Diadromous Fish Passage and Habitat to Shoreys Brook, Maine
This project, located in South Berwick, ME will restore approximately 800 feet of habitat for diadromous fish species and enhance approximately 4.3 miles of habitat in Shoreys Brook. A partially-breached dam will be removed, a failing perched culvert will be replaced with an open-arch culvert, and the streambed will be restored to its approximate original condition.

Project text/texmacs Eelgrass Restoration with Conservation Moorings in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts
Eelgrass meadows support complex trophic food webs and provide habitat for the forage, shelter and juvenile development of fisheries species. However, this habitat is declining in part due to damage from boating infrastructure. Traditional mooring chains drag on the seafloor, causing direct scour of eelgrass plants and degradation to the quality and function of eelgrass beds through increased turbidity. The project will restore eelgrass (Zostera marina), by replacing traditional moorings with elastic conservation moorings that minimize impacts to the seafloor by preventing chain drag. Please note, the mooring of boats and the establishment of mooring fields in seagrass beds is generally recognized as a significant source of damage to these important ecological communities across their range. As such, the Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership is only providing support to specific remediation actions at this and other designated project sites, which address historic damage caused by the scouring effects of traditional chain and block-anchor mooring systems.

Project Expanding Marine Meadow Habitat in the Peconic Estuary, NY
Marine meadows play an important role in providing ecosystem services while serving as preferred or essential habitat for a wide array of native fish species. In New York waters, it is estimated that over 80% of eelgrass habitat has been lost since the 1930’s due to natural and anthropogenic causes. To address the need to re-establish submerged aquatic vegetation in the Peconic Estuary, areas suitable for eelgrass restoration will be identified and restoration planting conducted. The public will have an opportunity to take part in these restoration efforts through participation in two land-based workshops.

Upper White River Habitat Restoration, VT
This project will address flood and flood recovery related habitat modifications on four tributaries to the Upper White River in Rochester, Vermont by utilizing active instream management and design; establishing riparian buffers; and removing barriers to fish passage in order to restore brook trout habitat and the natural hydrologic regime. When complete, the project will result in the protection and enhancement of 2.75 miles of in-stream habtiat and over 30 acres of floodplain and riparian habitat on the West Branch as well as 8.1 miles of in-stream habtiat in Howe, Marsh, and Nason Brooks.

Restoring Connectivity in the Sunday River and Martin Stream Watersheds, Maine
Subwatersheds of the Androscoggin River contain some of the finest intact and healthy brook trout habitat in the state of Maine. This project will remove two fish passage barriers providing a total of six miles of connectivity in the Sunday River and Martin Stream subwatersheds.

Restoration of Natural Hydrology and Habitat Complexity in the Machias, Rivers, Maine
This project will remove 11 remnant log drive dams and add large woody debris to restore fish passage, stream connectivity and natural stream processes that will passively restore cold water habitat in the tributaries of the Machias River. A total of 27.2 miles of stream upstream of the dam sites will be affected by the project.

Dirt & Gravel Road, Streambank Stabilization Project on Cross Fork, Pennsylvania
The Cross Fork subwatershed, part of the Kettle Creek drainage, is considered one of the best of the best brook trout habitat areas in Pennsylvania. The subwatershed, almost entirely contained within the Susquehannock State Forest and thus protected in perpetuity, is widely renowned as a brook trout destination fishery. The watershed is home to a network of dirt and gravel roads where improper road profiles, inadequate draining, and multiple stream crossings have accelerated erosion and transport of sediment to the streams. This project will select and implement high priority projects that focus on dirt and gravel road improvements, streambank stabilization, riparian buffer restoration, and brook trout habitat expansion.

St. Mary's Liming, St. Mary's River, Virginia
The streams of the Saint Mary's Wilderness, located on the slopes of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, have been severely compromised by anthropogenic atmospheric acid deposition. This project will add limestone sand using to the headwater streams of St. Mary's River to enhance over 12 miles of stream for brook trout.
