Work at Warm Springs Creek

The Ted Trueblood Chapter is working with the Harris Ranch Wildlife Mitigation Association on restoring aquatic habitat at Warm Springs Creek, a tiny tributary to the Boise River in east Boise. Our most recent work was organized with One Stone students who helped dig down the stream channel to make it possible to do the planting of cottonwood tree cuttings in the photo above, taken during the work session on Saturday March 19.

Earlier in the winter we had work crews with Riverstone School help dig out the inner channel and place the biologs to define the channel so that willow and cottonwood can be planted to eventually provide shade to this section of stream.

We soaked the cottonwood trees in the creek for a day prior to the planting effort on the 19th.
