Duffins Creek Restoration 2015

This August with the help of the Durham East Chapter of Trout Unlimited Canada and the land owner herself, TUC's Duffins Creek Renewal Program restored 300m of Duffins Creek in its headwaters.  The work took 3.5 days to complete and involved removing/ redistributing woody debris and trees that were blocking the channel and causing bank erosion.  The team also created a number of  defectors to help speed up the channels return to its natural form and function.  Funding to help support this restoration came from both the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnership Program.  Starting in early September the Duffins Creek Renewal Program will in partnership with TRCA, OFAH, and the Town of Ajax will restore a Large section of eroding bank adjacent to a park along Annie Crescent in Ajax.
