Sandhill Creek / Sweet Property

The Sweet Property is adjacent to Sandhill Creek in the Town of Fredonia. This habitat project created a small (ca. 0.2 acre) wetland and lateral connection to Sandhill Creek off Loraine Court just downstream of CTH A, by a simple scrape. The scrape was planted with a native seed mix and plugs and provides habitat for spawning fish, and for wildlife requiring open canopy shallow wetlands adjacent to riparian shrub and forested wetland and upland grassland and shrub habitat. The project adjacency to Sandhill Creek provides connectivity to an existing habitat corridor, from which various species may colonize the new wetland.
