On Tuesday, Lauren spent the evening with a group of environmental stewards gathered by Friends of the St. Clair to discuss fluvial ecology and river restoration projects in Marysville, MI. Cuttle Creek is a GLRI-funded river restoration project completed by the City to improve fish passage and water quality in the St. Clair River, which runs between Lake Huron and Lake St. Clair in the chain of Great Lakes. Cuttle Creek was a drainage ditch from the golf course running directly into the St. Clair River. The restoration project, along with management changes at the golf course, provided more habitat and reduced the impact of runoff from the golf course on the water quality of the Great Lakes. Although livingLAB was not involved in the Cuttle Creek restoration project, we were able to present on the ecological principles that made this project a success.
