REI Grant Hard at Work

A hearty thank you to our volunteers who helped with the planting and the rest of the Beckwith restoration project! It took some hardy individuals to get all those plants in the ground. Luckily we had perfect weather, followed by gentle rain. We couldn’t have asked for better for those plants!

With a grant from REI, Legacy has been able to remove all the invasive shrubs and trees from the stream bank, reroute the trail away from the edge of the banks, put in hundreds of pounds of seeds and 700 native shrubs to restore the health of the banks and prevent erosion.
