Green River, Guilford, VT
When the flood waters of tropical storm Irene receded, the Green River was left flowing in a new location. The new river channel caused a home to be cut off and abandoned. In coordination with the landowner, the Town of Guilford, and state and federal agencies, CRC cleaned up the abandoned home and tons of trash, rebuilt the river bank with root wads and vegetation, and made changes to the river that made it less damaging to roads and bridges and become good fish habitat again. This land will soon be placed into a conservation easement to be protected into the future.
