Summary

Brief: Under this project a collaborative and integrated geodatabase of inventoried connectivity barriers within the South Central Lake Superior Basin (SCLSB) was developed to prioritize restoration for more than 2,000 inventoried stream crossings. SUMMARY: KBIC Natural Resources Department received funding through the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes Landscape Conservation Cooperative to develop a collaborative and integrated geodatabase of inventoried connectivity barriers within the South Central Lake Superior Basin (SCLSB), to prioritize restoration for more than 2,000 inventoried stream crossings (see Figure 1). This project stemmed from KBIC’s participation in the Partnering for Watershed Restoration Group (PWR), a group of Federal, [...]

Purpose

The purpose/goals of the KBIC LCC project for the SCLSB were as follows: 1) develop a vision and associated goals, objectives and strategies within the PWR coalition for restoration of riparian and aquatic resources in the S.C. basin, 2) develop a collaborative geodatabase of inventoried connectivity barriers within the S.C. basin, 3) incorporate the collaborative geodatabase into a Great Lakes basin wide LCC prioritization model project, and 4) utilize current LiDAR data as a tool to evaluate conditions for further restoration needs.
