Brook Trout Restoration in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Georgia
This project will restore fragmented poor quality habitat and brook trout populations on the Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia by removing and replacing a culvert on Bryant Creek that is perched and acts as a barrier to fish movement. Additionally, nine miles of habitat will be improved by placing 54 structures in nine streams: Bryant Creek, Chester Creek, Lovinggood Creek, Long Creek, Underwood Creek, Walnut Fork, An unnamed tributary to Ammons Branch, Smith Branch, and Chastain Branch. Electrofishing will be used to renovate three streams: Stover Creek, Walnut Fork, and Tate Branch.

Brook Trout Restoration on the Chattahoochee National Forest, Georgia
This project will install 30 in-stream structures in five streams to improve habitat in a total of 10 miles of stream in the Hiawassee, Chattahoochee, and Tallulah watersheds in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Streams proposed for structure work are Big Net Creek within the Hiawassee River watershed, Upper Chattahoochee River within the Chattahoochee River watershed and North and South Forks of Moccasin Creek and Flat Branch in the Tallulah River watershed. In addition, Walnut Fork and Tate Branch will be electrofished and all non-native trout will be removed. The project will enhance the carrying capacity of primarily southern strain brook trout streams and will restore southern Appalachian brook trout to two streams that were historically brook trout waters.

Cooper Creek, Georgia
This project will restore over 1.6 miles of Southern Appalachian brook trout habitat contained within the Cooper Creek Watershed of the Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia. Habitat within Bryant Creek and Tretty and Burnett Branches will be restored using only hand labor to minimize soil disturbance. After non-native trout species are removed, trees will be cut into and across the various stream reaches to provide in-stream cover and create pool habitat for brook trout.

Project Raccoon Creek Stream Restoration for Imperiled Aquatic Species in lower Etowah River Drainage
This project restored stream areas of Raccoon Creek for imperiled aquatic species in lower Etowah River drainage, Georgia. This project has resulted in several new partnerships, including a collaborative planning workshop for Paulding County held by SARP and the Southeast Watershed Forum.

Project C header Oyster Reef Restoration Through the Use of Non-shell Cultch Material in the Estarine Areas of the Altamaha River, GA
Restoration of oysters along southeastern coasts is important for economic and ecological reasons. Oysters enhance waterquality. Their reefs buffer wave action adjacent to marshes, and they are harvested and marketed by commercial fishermen.

Project chemical/x-pdb Gravel Augmentation at Spawning Habitats in the Oconee and Ogeechee Rivers of Georgia
The robust redhorse (Moxostoma robustum), a species that had been lost to science for about 150 years, was discovered on the Oconee River in 1991. Wild populations subsequently found in the Savannah River (Georgia/South Carolina) and Pee Dee River (North Carolina) have been augmented by stocking in other areas of Georgia and South Carolina. The species is very particular about the water quality and depth as well as the gravel quality of its spawning sites. To encourage propagation of this native species, the Robust Redhorse Conservation Committee coordinates activities in several southeastern states. The gravel augmentation is expected to benefit invertebrates, including mussels, as well as anadromous species such as striped bass, American shad, and Atlantic sturgeon.

Project Altamaha River Flathead Project: More than One Way to Skin a Cat: Controlling the spread of invasive flathead catfish through research, outreach and education
The Altamaha River Watershed Conservation Action Plan cites invasive species as one of the six highest ranked threats. One of the invasive species thriving in portions of the watershed is the flathead catfish, which cause environmental harm, threaten native species, and can change the recreational value of an area for anglers. User groups (general public, children, anglers, commercial fishermen) as well as watershed managers must work together to control a population by size or area of infestation.
