Our Work

Tobacco River Restoration

Construction has begun on Phase I of the Tobacco River restoration project.  Funded by an EPA 319 Grant through the Montana Department of Environmental Quality the project will restore 0.4 mile reach of the river.  Funding from a grant provided by the Sweet Grass Conservation District will fund the riparian re-vegetation of the stream banks and floodplain.  Lincoln Conservation District is seeking funding through the DNRC Reclamation and Development Grant Program for Phase II.   Combined, Phase I and II will restore approximately 1 mile of river channel.  The goals of the project are to improve fisheries by addressing stream health including sediment reduction and floodplain access.  The project will enhance habitat conditions in this important reach of the Tobacco River which serves as a critical migratory corridor to spawning and rearing tributaries in the Upper Tobacco River drainage.

Construction of Phase I is planned to conclude in the fall of 2018.

Mud Creek Restoration

Lincoln Conservation District has been awarded an EPA 319 Grant through the Montana Department of Environmental Quality to complete the restoration of one half mile of Mud Creek and the adjacent riparian area and floodplain.  Additional funding has been proved by D.N.R.C Watershed grant program and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service through Kootenai River Network.  The project is located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 93 and Mud Creek Road. The goal of the project are to improve the aquatic species habitat by addressing stream health and installing a fish barrier to prevent non-native species from continuing upstream.  The project site was formerly a timber milling site that operated from 1954 through 1973.  During the sawmill operation, Mud Creek was straightened and channelized along Mud Creek Road and a cooling pond was constructed in the southeast corner of the project site. Construction is scheduled to begin fall of 2018.
