STREAM

RESTORATION

No stream is too small or insignificant for us to devote our expertise towards restoring. We can assist with minor to major stream restoration projects.

 

Past projects include stream reconstruction, planting stream-side vegetation to stabilize banks, terracing incised streams, and installing fencing to prevent livestock from diminishing sensitive riparian areas. 

NOXIOUS

WEED CONTROL

Noxious weeds are plants listed by the county as a menace to public welfare. Usually non-native to the area, they are proficient at out-competing native vegetation and cash crops for resources. Causing destruction for farmers, ranchers, and our native ecosystem. 

It is the responsibility of landowners to control the noxious weeds on their property. Although a challenging task, we can provide technical assistance, treatment expertise and grant funds to pay for the required needs to eradicate noxious weeds.
