IF YOU ARE A LANDOWNER

Become a Steward

Landowners with property on Twelve Mile Creek or its tributaries should consider becoming a Twelve Mile Creek steward to restore, enhance, and preserve their portion of the creek.  

 

Selected landowners will benefit from professional assessment of the creek, remediation and enhancement of the creek’s borders (riparian zone) such as plantings of native trees and shrubs, and where necessary, further measures to remove barriers, mitigate flooding and erosion, and reduce sediment.

 

The first step is to use the form below to contact us for a site survey. We will walk your property with you and provide you with a written, science-based plan for stream rehabilitation.  And if you agree, we will undertake the work and make sure it conforms to the plan.
