This week, whether on zoom or a field trip, students learned about the importance of riparian zones and how they function. We also discuss how the landscape affects the hydrology and quality of the water within riparian zones.
Students also learned that it is far cheaper to protect these essential ecosystems than the price tag from restoring them. The small section behind Davidson Elementary cost $91,000. Yes, some of our kiddos had sticker shock, but it enjoyed looking at and listening to the cascades created by the creek restoration project.
