We are long past due for an update, but we’ve been hard at work on Phase II of the restoration project which is now nearly complete! First – check out this short slide show that captures several flood events that have occurred since last years work. You will see how great the toe-wood structure functions to keep the high velocities of the river in the center of the channel sparing many river birch and sycamore trees from being eroded away into the river.
Also, read this great story written about the project this month in the Arkansas Times!
Lastly, look at a few photos of how great our transplants of alder, willow, sycamore, and river birch survived and thrived after the first growing season, a great success!
