Work is being done in and around the Mission Creek stream channel in Fond du Lac by the South St. Louis Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD). Contractors are beginning work on a Mission Creek tributary, Wednesday Oct. 30th. This affects the SHT spur trail, as it crosses this work area and they are planning to remove one of the wooden bridges (temporarily). Work should take a week to ten days, and during that time SWCD is asking that hikers and runners stay away from the area for safety. Heavy equipment will be operating and many large trees will be coming down.
We’re looking forward to seeing the Mission Creek stream channel return to a more natural meander as a result of this project, as well as having work on the tributaries re-establish sustainability. Thank you for all of your hard work, SWCD – and thank you trail users for your patience and understanding.
