We had a small but strong volunteer crew come out for our restoration day at Sopiago last Thursday. We installed water bars, filled rills, and disguised an unauthorized route that was delivering sediment into Sopiago Creek. There was some lovely vegetation along the trail that will hopefully grow in over the trail, helping to decompact the soil, now that traffic has been blocked off.

A rotting log is great for soil genesis to encourage vegetation growth!

These plants included azaleas, lupines, and foxgloves, all of which were beautifully blooming! The gooseberry bushes are starting to fruit, and we even spotted a couple wild strawberries!

A big thank you to those who came out to help us work on restoring this lovely area! If you couldn’t make it this time, we hope you’ll be able to join us on Wednesday, June 21st for our next restoration day!

 

Special thanks to Jane for making these delicious end of the day treats!
