Through our trail maintenance and education programs we will help reduce sediment runoff and keep trash from fouling our streams and rivers. When needed, we will take other steps to improve riparian health, including removing fallen trees to help keep rivers clear for fishing, opening clogged culverts, reducing damage from river access sites, and the like. 

Why do we want clear streams?   To SAVE DRAGONS, of course!  Check out this great video about saving the Hellbender, a dragon-like salamander, which features our favorite fisheries biologist, Lorie Stroup of the Pisgah Ranger District.
