Beecher's Brook + Foster's Run Tour



Hosted by Cleveland Metroparks



Join Cleveland Metroparks to hear about their in-house stream monitoring and restoration program, how they complement that with a volunteer monitoring program, and then tour areas of restoration in the Chagrin River Watershed. After a brisk walk to the southern terminus of North Chagrin Reservation, observe a recently completed stream restoration project, which includes removal of a fish migration barrier and installation of habitat/grade control structures and a variety of bioengineering methods. As we return uphill, the group will pass by an aged stream daylighting project on Fosters Run and evaluate whether or not the project was successful. Further upstream (and uphill) we will explore an area of infrastructure removal and stream restoration funded this summer through Ohio Department of Natural Resources H2Ohio program.

Please note: While the majority of this walk will be on paved surface, roundtrip this hike will be 3 miles, including entirely uphill walk on the return. The uphill portion will be broken up by several stops along the way. The final half hour of this fieldtrip will allow participants to explore interpretive exhibits and owl aviary at North Chagrin Nature Center and the ponds, wetlands and boardwalk that surround it.

Refreshments including brunch and afternoon snack will be provided.
