Restoring a floodplain forest in Colebrook, NH
Floodplain forests are an important part of our river ecosystems. They reduce stream temperatures, improve fish and wildlife habitat, protect clean water, and reduce nutrient and sediment loading. In this presentation, we will discuss some characteristics of floodplain forests and efforts to protect and restore these forests along the Connecticut River and its tributaries.
