STREAMSIDE FOREST RECOVERY WEEK
For a report on this exciting week in 2013, click here.
Regional Creeks Need Our Help! Invasive plants outcompeting native plants, decreased shade, rising water temperatures, increased erosion and decreased filtration of pollutants and native species diversity all contribute to the poor health of many regional streams.
Every year in early November, Lomakatsi hosts our annual Streamside Forest Recovery Week in which students and volunteers work alongside Lomakatsi’s staff of restoration professionals to restore several stream reaches in the Bear Creek Watershed. Weekdays during the Streamside Forest Recovery Week, volunteers are welcome to assist with student events.
Our Recovery Week community service day takes place on a Saturday at one of our adopted site locations and welcomes anyone wanting to volunteer. Stay tuned for your opportunity to help with this important annual event!
If you are interested in getting involved and want to receive updates on volunteer opportunities, please send us an email and let us know you want to be included on our mailing list: Info@lomakatsi.org.
