Gaining Ground from Reed Canary Grass along Mallard Creek

Willow stakes for out shading reed canary grass – Dan Bowen

Volunteers mulching  beside Mallard Creek

On October 23 and 24th, 2020, volunteers helped reclaim 150 meters of streamside along Mallard Creek.

Twenty-one Project Watershed volunteers, including three students from the Isfeld Environment Club, and five AECON volunteers participated in harvesting, planting, and mulching nearly 1000 willow stakes along 150 meters of the creek. These plantings will shade out invasive reed canary grass as they grow, and will contribute to riparian zone enhancement, improving habitat conditions for salmon, birds, small mammals and amphibians.

The group was so productive we now have enough willow stakes harvested to plant another stretch of the creek of about the same length. We will be organizing another planting day sometime this winter or early next spring, so keep your eyes peeled!
