Forrestal Nature Preserve restoration project image

The Project involved removal of non-native plants from a riparian area on the Forrestal Nature Preserve, one of the key parcels of the future Portuguese Bend Nature Preserve. The objective was to restore the wetland and discourage further encroachment of non-native plants into the existing habitat on the site. An impressive 1000 hours of volunteer time was donated to the project and 419 Native Plants and trees were put into the ground!
