Willow Project 2019 Completed

Our spring 2019 willow harvesting, inventory and planting on Ranch Creek was completed May 19.  Once again, we harvested and planted willows along one of the most severely degraded streams in Grand County in an effort to rehabilitate the river and riparian environment. As part of the project, we did a stem-by-stem inventory of last year's plantings and were delighted to find a 73% survival rate from last year's planting. The hard work of all our volunteers is making a real difference in the recovery of our streams! To learn all our secrets of successful willow harvesting and planting, click here.
