June 19 – Work Project Summary and Pictures
Article written on 2021-06-27 by: Adrian Meseberg
Green Bay Trout Unlimited held our third work project of 2021 on Beaver Creek (according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WIDNR) Beaver Creek has nearly 10 miles of class 1 trout water and another 1+ miles of class 2).
For this work day volunteers, and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource (WIDNR) staff, met on public land just outside the small town of Beaver (to the West). We park off of 25th road. This part of public access is a pretty decent walk from the creek. The goal for this project was to improve access. In order to do this we shoveled mulch into wheel barrows and large plastic totes, then we hauled, and spread, it onto foot paths. We also were able to “break in” the new chapter chainsaws by removing small trees and brushes obstructing the trail. Some of the stretches had very muddy areas where wood planks were built. This way anglers could easily follow the new path, through the woods and mud, to more easily reach the water. This was done after splitting into two separate groups.
Approximately 17 volunteers and DNR staff made the day a success. They included; Jonathan Pyatskowit (WIDNR), Sam Meleski (WIDNR), Brent Ritter (WIDNR), GBTU’s Chad Neta, Mike Reeb, David Reeb, Adrian Meseberg, Dennis Gusick, Pat Hill, Doug Seidl, Mark Winkel, Jeff House, John Tilleman and Paul Kruse. Jonathan Pyatskowit’s two sons also joined the party. My apologizes to anyone I may have missed.
A huge thanks goes to everyone involved. It is because of all you, anglers can enjoy easy access to a serene day on the water.
THANK YOU !!
