Fawn River Critters

W hen you spend as much time outdoors as we do, you see an abundance of insects, fish & wildlife! This is one of the most exciting parts of the restoration work taking place on Fawn River. Each day brings new encounters and an opportunity to see, first-hand, all the life a river holds. Take a minute to view some of the photographs that have been captured and be sure to check back as we will continually add new photographs!

Northern Hogsucker

Spotted September 17, 2012

The Northern Hogsucker or as we prefer, Pugamoo, has been selected as the mascot for the restoration efforts on Fawn River, as they rely heavily on a gravel bottom and are intolerant of polluted and dirty water.
