Survey of Lynde Creek Redside Dace Habitat and Stewardship Opportunities


The purpose of the survey of the Upper Lynde Creek Watershed for redside dace habitat addresses the ability of current habitat measurements to accurately predict redside dace locations.  The survey will be completed in three phases.  The first phase identifies potential redside dace habitat by using GIS technology.  In addition, landowners are contacted to gain permission to access the streams on private property.  The second phase includes the field surveys following a modified version of the Ontario Stream Assessment protocol and utilizes underwater camera technology.  The final phase consists of follow-up contact with landowners and reporting on the results.
