Shovels? Check. Coffee bags? Check. Kayaks? Check.
Reynolds Natural Resource Academy has been using an interesting tool in their past few visits to Beaver Creek: kayaks. Teacher Kim Wilson talked to us a few weeks ago about wanting to use her personal kayaks to get students more acquainted with the water. Students have thoroughly enjoyed being able to use the kayaks and we hope that all students will have a chance to get familiar enough with them to be able to do some debris cleanup, water quality and wildlife monitoring sonn enough.
Last week, students planted wetland natives along the banks of Beaver Creek in Troutdale as well as staked coffee bags around plants to impede weed growth. These coffee bags are donated to SOLV and we use them to give our newly planted natives a jump start on their growth.
