This photo was taken one year later at the same location. Prairie plants that were seeded are growing vigorously in the corridor. The wetland plants planted in the oxbow wetland are doing well. To control shoreline erosion, prairie cord grass was planted in the banks. At certain locations, rolls of coconut fiber about 1 ft. in diameter, were staked into the foot of the bank for additional stabilization. The rolls themselves were then planted with native plants. Boulders were placed in the stream to enhance the creation of pools and riffles to provide improved habitat and water quality.
