Work was completed  on the 2-step fish barrier on the upper Shields River.  The design  prevents invasive fish from competing with native cutthroats. The Forest Service fisheries biologist, Clint Sestrich, led the team, and Fish, Wildlife and Parks Fisheries biologist, Carol Endicott, worked cooperatively on the project. Chapter members also had the opportunity to help re-vegetate the streambanks.
