Earth Day Tree Planting at Lewis Creek

On April 22, Stever Barlett, a dozen Middlebury College Alpine Ski Team Members  and a few NHRAA members planted willows at a farm on Tyler Bridge Road. Preparing willow wattles and fascines, planting and “live staking” those wattles and fascines and planting willow whips was accomplished as necessary.  The river is small and shallow at this point. The other job accomplished by the crew was to remove a mature tree that blew over on the stream bank.

Access Map to the New Haven River.

Some sites have changed due to Private Ownership and Posted Areas. Ask permission if you plan to fish those locations.


There are many aspects of Conservation. We spend time on river clean-up during Green-up Day and every time one of our group fishes.

We help the State of Vermont to stock fish.

We teach students to respect and protect the river environment.
