- PINE TREE HABITAT RESTORATION
They are currently partnered with the Pine Tree Brook Habitat Restoration Project, based in Milton, MA.
The brook is home to rare native brook trout, whose population is being threatened by dams that prevent natural breeding and migration patterns. This project works to restore the brook trout’s natural ecosystem by removing three dams, which will improve water quality and support the species survival. This project will protect an important environmental asset for the Boston area and beyond.
MILL CREEK FLOW RESTORATION
Their sales also help fund the work of the Water Trust Mill Creek Restoration Project, in Sacramento Valley, CA.
Mill Creek often runs dry in the summer due to agricultural withdrawals. This initiative (led by The Nature Conservancy) will transfer water in order to support critical salmon runs, and protect water flow. The restoration will also nurture wetland habitats for migratory birds in the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex.
