Examples of habitat improvement
Habitat is the place where a plant or animal is naturally found. Improving habitats in and around waterways results in healthier, more diverse aquatic communities. In turn, that benefits those of us who enjoy Pennsylvania’s water resources and the organisms that call them home. The Fish and Boat Commission works to improve habitat in a variety of ways, from assisting sportsmen groups and conservation on projects to improve fish habitat in local lakes and streams, coordinating the removal of dams and other blockages to natural fish movement and providing technical guidance on designing riparian buffers.
