Henry Fork Construction is Complete
Wildlands is pleased to announce that construction has been completed on Henry Fork Stream and Wetland Mitigation Full-Delivery Project. Located in Catawba County, NC, this project is expected to deliver 4,500 stream mitigation units and 4.0 wetland mitigation units at closeout. As a value-added benefit of the project, Wildlands also acquired the entire 50-acre parcel and included this area within the established permanent conservation easement, establishing a permanent 100-foot buffer on the Henry Fork River and with the vision of a more holistic bottomland wetland forest ecosystem restoration. The mitigation activities removed four golf course ponds, along with reestablishing step-pool channel in the upper tributaries and meandering stream-wetland complex channels where streams enter the floodplain of the larger river.
