These are exciting times for our society. We are working with the city to Daylight Mill Creek (i.e. bring it back to the surface and reconnect it to the river via its original creek bed), and they have shown some positive signs that this is a possibility. However, we need to keep up the engagement and show them just how important Mill Creek is to us.
Daylighting will mean the rejuvenation of our treasured creek, including the possibility of fish making the trip up the ravine from the North Saskatchewan River and spawning in its bed for the first time in 40 years! A bonus of this will be the further diversification of wildlife in the creek. For example, blue herons coming back to the creek to hunt those fish.
In addition to this initiative, Mill Creek has been selected to be part of a provincial study being conducted on a number of Albertan creeks. This study will require volunteers to do regular water testing in the creek. [Creek Watch]
As you can tell, there is plenty to be done. I really looking forward to seeing you at the AGM, to share in our successes and create a new future for Mill Creek Ravine.
President, The Keepers of Mill Creek
