Wilson Creek Watershed Improvement Project, Rugby, Virginia

Protect the headwaters of Wilson Creek which drain the high country of Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, and support wild brook trout; because of their spring-fed sources and high elevation, these streams will be quality refugia in terms of water quality, quantity, and thermal characteristics during times of climate uncertainty. The project is at the intersection of the Appalachian Trail and the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail, and includes portions of the Little Wilson Creek Wilderness and Grayson Highlands State Park. We will reduce erosion and sedimentation by fencing wild ponies and longhorn cattle out of the mountain top bogs, close and rehabilitate unauthorized trails, re-establish appropriate drainage on existing trails, and promote riparian shading by restoring the native spruce ecosystem.
