The proposed 86-acre Little Stillwater Wetlands Mitigation site is located in Franklin Township, Harrison County, Ohio. The site is bounded to the north by US 250 and to the south by Little Stillwater Creek. The mitigation site will be constructed on land currently owned by Harrison County board of Commissioners and has a potential for
approximately 45 acres of restored wetlands. The Foundation will design, construct, and manage the site for clients that require a substantial amount of mitigation (3+ acres typically) on a case by case basis for a negotiated fixed fee.
Hisey Park Stream and Wetland Restoration
(Huntington Corps District, Little Miami watershed)
The Foundation has restored over 10 acres of wetlands and completed plans for the restoration of over 2200 feet of stream restoration in the Little Miami watershed. Additional opportunities exist onsite.
Greater Youngstown-Warren Area
(Pittsburgh Corps District)
Ohio Wetlands Foundation has developed a successful relationship with land owners along the Yankee Creek riparian corridor. This relationship has yielded over 70 acres of restored or preserved wetlands and uplands habitat and over 1,670 feet of permanent preservation along Yankee Creek. The existing forested riparian corridor contains a mosaic of high quality wetlands and uplands and is inhabited by wood turtles, river otter, and Massasauga rattlesnakes.
Due to the complex nature of the Inter-Agency Review process and the relatively small size of this site, the Foundation would consider making the Fish Creek site available as a individual or consolidated mitigation project. Please contact the Foundation if this meets your mitigation needs.
