Kadunce River

Grand Marais, Minnesota

NORDIC Group performed river and trail restorations as well as in-stream habitat enhancements for trout and steelhead along roughly 1,500 feet of the Kadunce River. NORDIC created fish habitat structures out of rocks, logs and other habitable structures in the stream bed and riverbanks. Because this project had challenging access, NORDIC utilized specialty equipment to work in and along the confined riverbed to minimize damage to other critical natural features. NORDIC was selected by the MN Trout Unlimited and the MnDNR staff as a qualified Stream Habitat and Excavation Contractor to complete this critical habitat restoration project.
