It’s spring at the Reedy Creek Stream Restoration project! Redbud and dogwood trees along the stream are in full bloom.
This winter, scientists installed additional monitoring equipment next to the streams. This equipment will help them study wetlands that are developing next to the stream. Wetlands provide additional areas for animals like frogs and salamanders to live. Wetlands also help filter and clean water before it reaches the streams. The scientists will study the wetlands over the next several growing seasons.
