Trout will soon have a better home in the Mill River thanks to a conifer revetment project.
Volunteers from Nutmeg and Mianus TU joined others in the water to anchor last year’s Christmas trees, donated by the Town of Stratford, along the banks to reshape the river.

Funds came through the Embrace A Stream program, a collaboration of Orvis and national TU, and local showings of the Fly Fishing Film Tour.
Work will continue, with continued removal of knotweed, planting of more native species, and another revetment with 2018 Christmas trees
