Upper Hyde Creek Work Party - August 18, 2012

A Society work party was arranged with Wesbild to clean up and repair Upper Hyde Creek on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam on August 18th.   We started at 9:00am with a good crew of volunteers and the assistance of Mike Collins from Wesbild.

About eight years ago a lot of work was done by Wesbild to provide a suitable habitat for juvenile salmon with a side channel that lead to a deep pond.  Over the years the area has deteriorated with much of the area filled in. 

Manhole covers provide some indication as to the amount of planning and work done in the area.

Mike Collins showed up with machinery to help with the project.

Shane confers with Mike as to the best approach to moving logs.
