THE STORY:

We need your help to complete 2 projects to help native fish in the Weber River near Ogden Utah.  These projects will restore the next 4 miles of the lower Weber River.  We have some money raised already but need help to put us over the top.  

Morgan Diversion: The Morgan Diversion is located in Morgan Valley and blocks passage for both Bonneville cutthroat trout and bluehead sucker. The Morgan Diversion is an abandoned 7-foot tall dam and a complete barrier to fish in the river during most flows.  We are close to having enough funding to remove this dam.

Jacobs Creek: While we have already replaced an undersized culvert at a road crossing on Jacobs Creek, there is another culvert just upstream that creates a barrier for spawning Bonneville cutthroat trout that still needs to be addressed. The Utah Department of Wildlife Resources has identified Jacobs Creek as one of the most important spawning tributaries for Bonneville cutthroat trout in this reach of the Weber River.

The entire project cost for both projects is $109,615.  We need to raise another $25,000 to reach our goal and need your help in putting us over the top to get these projects done!  

OUR IMPACT SO FAR:  In 2015, we completed a series of 3 habitat restoration projects for bluehead sucker and Bonneville cutthroat trout in an 18 mile stretch of the Weber River near Ogden, Utah. This work is part of an ongoing effort to both protect native fish and improve the water efficiency for the water users.  If you are interested in reading more about the three projects completed in 2015, with photos and timelapse video, you can read more here.
