It is hard to realize that it has been 12 years since we completed the Millennium Creek Restoration Program, finished in 2008. Yesterday, I was sorting thru some old pictures of the creek, before the restoration work began. The photo below shows what the creek looked like, before we cut a new stream channel, narrowing the old one by a factor of approximately 3, over the entire length of the stream.
Every year, trout spawn in this tributary to the Bighill Creek. The newly hatched trout regenerate the populations in the BH Creek, annually. The most important thing to do now, is too protect the stream. It is an environmentally sensitive gem, in the hear of the Town of Cochrane.
