Film: The Restoration of Fossil Creek

Film: The Restoration of Fossil Creek

20 Mar 2019



5:30 pm-7:30 pm

Located at: Prescott College Crossroads Center

Fossil Creek was designated as a Wild and Scenic River in March, 2009. Now one of the best native fish streams in Arizona, restoration occurred after Arizona Public Service deactivated the Childs hydroelectric power plant, removed the flume and equipment, and restored the full flow of Fossil Springs into the creek bed which had been dry for a hundred years. After the flow was restored, Arizona Game and Fish constructed a fish barrier near the confluence of Fossil Creek and the Verde River, removed all the non-native fish, and stocked 9 species of rare native fish. The film describes how Fossil Creek has been restored to glory. The producer of the film, NAU Professor Stefan Sommer, will present the film and answer questions.
