The first growing season of post-construction monitoring of the Reedy Creek Stream Restoration project is complete. Scientists found exciting results! The streams are stable and newly planted trees in the floodplain are growing. The streams created a place for fish and bugs to live in the water. Scientists observed many frogs and salamanders living in the newly restored habitat. Frogs, salamanders and other amphibians do not live in the streams because they do not need water at all times during the year. Instead, they live in pools beside the streams that are dry during the summer and wet during the winter and spring. This winter there are lots of pools beside the stream channels at Reedy Creek for wildlife to make their home!
