St. Paul District forester Bobby Jackson installs a sign on Lock and Dam 3 mitigation property near Maiden Rock, Wis. The recent construction of navigation improvements on the embankments at Lock and Dam #3, resulted in the loss of vital environmental features in the floodplain. As part of our efforts to mitigate these impacts, the St. Paul District purchased 520 acres along the Rush and Trimbelle Rivers in Pierce Co., Wis., restoring 313 of those acres back to native floodplain forest. This isn’t unique to the district. Read more about another reforestation project on a Mississippi River island near Red Wing, Minn.: go.usa.gov/WB3W USACE photo by Randy Urich
