WE CREATED A 10,000 SQUARE FOOT RIPARIAN BUFFER, OUTDOOR CLASSROOM AND NATIVE BIRD HABITAT!
In addition to beautifying our watershed, buffers play a key role in improving water quality in streams and rivers, providing several benefits:
- Increased on-site stormwater infiltration
- Decreased non-point source pollution
- Prevention of excessive downstream flows
- Decreased water temperature through shading
- Improved habitat for wildlife
- Increased opportunity for watershed education
