Open House

I know this on short notice and I know it is out where many may not be able to attend.  Don’t care, needs to be mentioned anyway.  If you can be there, do it!

Open house for new stream section is Tuesday

MITCHELL, Neb. — The Dry Spotted Tail Creek partner group is inviting the public to view the newly completed stream section at the Platte River Basin Environments property west of Mitchell. The area will be open from 5:30-7:30 p.m. MDT on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Anyone interested in supporting conservation efforts is encouraged to attend and visit about the project with representatives from PRBE, Trout Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. The open house is celebrating the completion of the first phase of construction. The second and final phase is scheduled for 2020.

Organizers said the family-friendly event is open to all ages, and attendees should bring footwear appropriate for walking along the stream to see its features. The stream’s design is intended to improve habitat for rainbow trout and a variety of wetland wildlife species.

The site is one-half mile west of Mitchell on County Road E, or 1 mile west of Mitchell on U.S. Highway 26 and then south on Road 13. Temporary signs will direct visitors to the parking area.

The partner group and a variety of other sources are funding the project. They include the Nebraska Environmental Trust, North American Wetlands Conservation Act, Trout Unlimited Embrace-a-Stream and Wildlife & Sport Fish Restoration.
