Frozen Camp Wildlife Management Area Stream and Wetland Restoration Project

Downstream Strategies restored over 6,000 feet of the Left Fork of Frozen Camp Creek in Jackson and Roane counties in West Virginia. The project site had been cleared for agriculture but is now managed for wildlife habitat. The legacy of agricultural impacts left a straightened, eroding, unhealthy stream. This project restored the stream’s natural sinuosity and reconnected the stream to the floodplain and adjacent wetlands, improving the health of the entire ecosystem.
