Save the Date: May 15th Sunday Parkways at the Foster Floodplain Natural Area

1 Comment

Environmental Services will be back for Sunday Parkways on May 15 at Foster Floodplain Natural Area to celebrate all the great things happening on Johnson Creek.

Foster Floodplain Natural Area in 2013


Come see how things have changed from five years ago when we completed restoration of the natural area to increase flood storage, protect water quality and enhance fish and wildlife habitat.

Great reason (and occasion) to return to this site. Progress photos are so inspiring. How about some photo credits? These are lovely pictures in themselves, not just documentation.
