A Culvert Story

This story began with an impacted culvert on Jam Brook in the upper reaches of the watershed in Searsmont where native brook trout spawn and feed in cool deep waters. In 2012, a local fisherman and member of Georges River Trout Unlimited, Dan Daly, recognized that an improperly placed culvert was preventing passage of fish to their spawning grounds. He began work to change it with the support of Trout Unlimited National, Georges River Land Trust and other state and federal organizations.

We also saw that this story was important to tell, so the Land Trust reached out to a local filmmaker, Dana Rae Warren, who donated her services to capture the replacement of the hung culvert with an arched culvert in a film called A CULVERT STORY.
