Ken Whillans Resource Management Area
On Friday, March 4th, we were finally able to proceed with a conservation work day with Credit Valley Conservation at the Ken Whillans area up on Highway 10.
The project we completed consisted of building and laying out on the ice a series of rock piles and crib structures (made from pallets, Christmas trees, stone) placed in the shallow north arm of the pond/lake. These will melt through in the spring and create spawning area cover. They will hopefully draw fish away from spawning along shore where they are easily poached, and get them to spawn offshore. Club volunteers along with CVC staff pre-built over a dozen of these and then dragged them out onto the ice.
