Upland Restoration Project 2010 – 2011


Wetland before treatment and planting

OWEB Small Grant

Upland Restoration Project 

April 2010 to September 2011 

Improved Upland Process and Function 

This project increased native plant species composition to provide better wildlife habitat and provided improved wetland connection to an adjacent woodland area in the Christensen Creek sub-basin. Blackberry thickets that ring an intact woodland area and reed canary grass that invaded a wetland area were removed using mechanical cutting and chemical spray. The treated areas were planted with native vegetation.
