STEWARDSHIP DAYS FOR THE HOPE VALLEY MEADOW RESORTATION PROJECT CONTINUES
Volunteers are always needed as we continue to monitor water flow, quality, data entry and photo monitoring. The work is in preparation of the project to being in summer 2015.
The overall goal of the Hope Valley Meadow Project is to restore the full range of ecosystem services that this highly-visible and well-known meadow has the potential to provide including: natural water storage, flood attenuation, cooling and filtering of water, aquatic and riparian habitat, and recreational values.
The first of June will begin the education process so all volunteers will have knowledge of the various monitoring processes we will be conducting over the next few field seasons.
