Construct a riparian exclosure on Gooseberry Creek for habitat protection and enhancement and to improve effectiveness of an erosion control structure. This exclosure will reduce a headcut caused by livestock and wild horses accessing the creek around an existing erosion control structure. The structure was placed to stop migration of a headcut up Gooseberry Creek that would also threaten the County road.
2008 Update: This project enhances and protects water quality in Gooseberry Creek by reducing a headcut forming around an existing erosion control structure. The exclosure (JH) encompasses about six acres and ensures the existing erosion control structure will stay intact and functional. Access to the creek for horses, livestock and wildlife is still available. There are additional benefits for moose and other big game species in the area.
