New Mexico Trout has a tradition of welcoming the Spring opening of FR 376 between the Gilman Tunnels and Porter’s Landing with a volunteer trash pickup. That Forest Service road provides access to our Rio Guadalupe home water and it accumulates a lot of roadside trash over a season’s heavy use by the many people who visit that corridor.

The linked YouTube video describes a long-term restoration project along Dixie Creek, a small stream near Elko, Nevada. Thirty-two years ago, the BLM fenced a segment of the creek to exclude cattle.

The amazing result is a testament to the resilience of natural systems and shows what can result if they are just allowed to recover.
We encourage you to watch the video and be encouraged that streams can recover if we are persistent.
