Speaking of creek restoration, I'm so excited as I just received word this week that the county approved our private project for this same end. We received grant money to fund the project in part but had to allocate some of our own funds so no vacation for us this year. It's all good as in the long run, a nice restored wetland on our property will provide year 'round vacation. Right now reed canary grass has taken over and the creek has been channelized. The engineering/contracting firm is going to re-meander the creek, remove about 2 feet of soil so the area will conduct itself more like a swale and to remove the rcg seed bank. Then we'll seed it in with natives and prescribe annual burns. I'm a little nervous as I'm not sure how we'll keep the invasive at check but have asked for a long term management plan for this. Just don't have it yet but I'm suspecting it'll be daunting. Especially seeing as that our neighbor has rcg all over his part of the creek upstream from us and this is not an isolated population. What exactly are you going to do w/ your education? Have you any idea yet?
