Clayburn Creek Fish Habitat Improvement Project

Project Type: Parks, Trails and Environment
Project Description

The City of Abbotsford is working to provide more fish habitat in the Clayburn Creek watershed that includes restoration of side-channel habitat and adding new channel enhancements at two locations. The goal is to create side-channel areas, which will provide rearing habitat, and some limited spawning habitat.

The fish habitat improvement work will be completed by Skylark Development Corp. and overseen by the City’s design / environmental consultant and by First Nations archaeological monitors.

Any updates to this project will be posted on this webpage. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this project.
