On Top of Old Smoky

Land O’Sky TU is currently working with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park fisheries team to reintroduce native Brook Trout in the the Cataloochee Creek drainage.  Pictured above are Ed Heeg, Jay Hawthorne and Ron Bradford,  three of our hard working volunteers following a recent work day to survey and mark out the drainage in preparation for invasive species removal and further restoration work to come in September.   If you would like to get involved to help the Brook Trout reclaim this habitat, contact Jay at johnjhawthorne@gmail.com   Be ready for some physical work in difficult terrain but you’ll meet some great folks and learn a lot about how real cold-water fisheries conservation work gets done!
