Tolch Rock Trail Improvements - June 11, 2016 at 9:00AM
This is a volunteer recruitment for work on the Tolch Rock trail, sponsored by the Trout Unlimited Juneau Chapter and U.S. Forest Service (USFS).
Tolch Creek is a small stream that drains into the west side of Mendenhall Lake between Skater’s Cabin and the West Glacier trailhead. The stream supports coho and sockeye salmon. The Tolch Rock trail, which parallels the lower reaches of the stream on it’s north side, has adversely impacted riparian habitat along the stream, particularly along a 40 foot long section of trail about 250 feet from the trailhead. The US Forest Service will be working with the Juneau Trout Unlimited's Habitat Improvement Committee, and volunteers they recruit, to:
Relocate this section of trail away from Tolch Creek
Revegetate a buffer between the trail and the stream
Upgrade the trail
The plan is for volunteers to meet at 9:00 AM Saturday June 11 at the Tolch Rock trailhead on Skater's Cabin Road. Drinking water, snacks, and a Visitor Center season pass will be provided for volunteers. Tools and safety equipment for this project will be provided by the USFS.
Are you a landowner adjacent to a local anadromous or resident fish stream? The JWP works on riparian and stream restoration projects throughout the Juneau area and is a great resource and partner for landowners interested in improving habitat and/or water quality with a revegetation or restoration project.
We are currently seeking potential partners with land adjacent to lower Jordan Creek (see map below).
The JWP can potentially obtain grant funding to complete a project on your property at no cost to you. All we need is your support!
