Reconnect native Southern Appalachian brook trout habitat on two tributaries to the French Broad River by replacing culverts blocking aquatic organism passage with fully passable structures. Project will reconnect 4 miles of native brook trout habitat and 29 miles of small stream network, allowing genetically distinct, endemic populations of brook trout better access to breeding habitat and thermal refuge.
