This project is designed to preserve the rare Coldwater Canyon Creek native trout population by improving its habitat, increasing access to new habitat areas through barrier removal, and increasing knowledge of the population genetic sturcture. Funding will be use to physically remove ivy, wild grape, snakeroot, and other debris; remove or modifying barriers by breaking up and hauling concrete; and to perform genetic analysis studies on trout population.
