Our volunteer restoration event on Friday, August 13th, was a “rocking” success! Twenty-two people showed up to help repair this degraded wetland meadow in the French Creek drainage. Next year, the area will provide critical habitat for a variety of wildlife species and will help hold water on the landscape.
We were joined by local landowners, a cute toddler, several dogs, and representatives from MFWP, TNC, MCC, DNRC, NRCS, IWVJ, Audubon Society, and Anaconda Sportsman’s Club. Rocks were donated by Anaconda Sportsman’s and Skyline Sportsmen’s Association.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to help!
This event was part of our initiative to restore the Lower French Creek watershed, funded by the Bureau of Reclamation. To learn more about the restoration of French Creek, click here: https://bhwc.org/project/lower-french-creek/.
