July 2012

BHRI staff and volunteers continue to collect and catalogue plant cuttings, seeds and possible future locations, requiring extensive site visits, ground-truthing, data management, and interaction with local residents who want to contribute to the restoration of ecosystem services in their communities.

Restoration experts with BHRI recently received a preliminary approval for an ecological restoration project on private land along Harshaw Creek. The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service project would allow for up to 100 small rock erosion control structures, large wooden bank protection ramparts, and earth moving to arrest erosion and support three ephemeral spring/wetland complexes in a designated Important Bird Area.
