Preventing Erosion with Terraces

terraces at end of day11/04/2012 – Another great volunteer turn out on November 3rd helped us to get a ton accomplished!

We filled the terraces with soil and shaped them. The terraces, which will be planted with native plants, will provide much needed erosion control for the small slope that descends to the rest of the habitat from side walk on the south side of the building.

We also continued to work on the rain garden and filled much of the splash zone with gravel.

You know you are working with fabulous volunteers when your wheel barrows give out before they do!
