This photo and photo #32 illustrate the progression of a stream corridor restoration project. In this photo exotic weeds and grasses have been killed with a properly applied herbicide, avoiding areas close to the stream. Later the corridor was graded in select locations to create "perched" wetlands resembling "oxbows" resulting from natural changes in a stream course. In some locations eroding banks were also resculpted in preparation for planting.
