Young Naturalists Restore Riparian Area

On September 24, 2011 the Cowichan Young Naturalists Club joined the Quamichan Stewards to restore the lakeshore riparian area at Sterling Ridge Park. The sun was shining while the crew worked hard to plant 160 native shrubs.

These plants will absorb nutrients (pollution) from surface runoff and help control flooding while providing habitat for trout fry in the spring.
