Camp Ashland Chute Inlet

LOOKING Closer

Overlooking the inlet of a backwater chute at the Camp Ashland Training Site, NE. The lower Platte River is located in the background. It is anticipated that there will be periods of high water events from ice jams and Spring rainfall over time. These water events will naturally widen the inlet and scour the existing bank line creating habitat for wildlife and allow for sediment nutrient exchange. This process will benefit all wildlife species that utilize the area.
