Photo story of shoreline restoration along the Wild & Scenic Rum River

The Great River Greening crew worked on riverbank restoration along the Rum River, one of Minnesota’s state-designated Wild and Scenic Rivers. We restored 1400 feet of riverbank by using cedar revetments, sloping the riverbank, and planting live willow stakes.Major funding for this project is from the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, with additional funding from Centerpoint Energy, Connexus Energy, East Central Energy Trust, Great River Energy, Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Fund, Minnesota DNR Shorelands Program, Minnesota Environmental Trust Fund, ONEOK Foundation, US Fish & Wildlife Service.
