The October meeting had a guest speaker Dennis Pruckler to speak about the Cedar River Watershed. He shared some websites we have been asked to post to our website.
This area, because of the convergence of the Cedar, the West Fork of the Cedar, and the Shell Rock River north by Janesville and Beaver Creek to the south is a natural gem. There are not many spots in the world with this type of configuration. The convergence of these four rivers and their four inland river deltas has resulted in an interwoven complex of river channels and side channels known as a anastomosed river.
Things to do :
Recreational interests such as The Iowa water trails association, as well as wildlife, conservation, wetland, and water quality interests all may support portions of this restoration.
Other benefits could include Improved water quality, and creation of high quality diverse wildlife habitat.
The community could benefit from improved water quality, flood reduction. The potential for high quality residential development, quality of life, recreational, and natural areas, all of which attract industry and community growth.
