Our new, beautifully sculpted meander, complete with large woody debris, willow mattresses, gravels, rock work and inviting pools, is the centerpiece for this year's Arbor Day/Restoration Day. (More info on Creek Restoration)
We are so excited to be able to plant hundreds of perennials, shrubs and trees along this 720-foot stretch of creek. These plantings will provide habitat for many creatures of water, air and land to come and settle into this jewel in our lower fields.
I am so amazed by and grateful to all of the people who have helped this project move to fruition. It takes everyone doing what they can and feel moved to do. We want to thank the dreamers, writers, designers, donors, workers and collaborators, and express thanks for the support and patience and hard work of so many people who have helped make this project a reality.
The planting will be directed by STRAW (Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed). These folks know just how to teach and inspire us to get the plants in right.
