Refuge Staff and Volunteers Work towards Restoring Riparian Areas on San Bernardino NWR
Southwest Region, January 23, 2009
Print Friendly Version

Over the course of two weeks in January refuge staff and volunteers pole planted approximately 45 trees in Black Draw and Hay Hollow Wash on San Bernardino NWR.  The trees were removed from around refuge impoundments that had an over abundance of growth on their margins.  The trees will help to stabilize the stream channels and provide shade to slow evaporation of water in the channels.  This project is just one of several to help restore the riparian corridors on the refuge to what they once were prior to European settlement in the early 1800’s.
