Camp Ashland Chute

LOOKING Closer

Looking north along a restored channel of a backwater chute at the Camp Ashland Training Site, NE.  This area was historically connected to the lower Platte River, but hardening of banks along the Platte River eliminated the connectivity to the River and became silted and vegetated over time.  With this restored backwater area we anticipate seeing meandering of this chute through high water flows from ice jams and spring rain runoff which will provide habitat for all wildlife that utilize the Platte River, fish spawning, and sediment nutrient exchange between the Platte River and floodplain.
