Parrot Creek at Phillips Creek

This week, Parrot Creek got to try something new while they were out at Phillips Creek. The group tried their hand at bio-engineering by planting live Dogwood stakes near the bank of the creek.

Some of the volunteers helped to dig a trench for the stakes while the others helped to trim and collect Dogwood trimmings to plant back into the soil. The volunteers had a lot of fun doing a new activity. They are excited to come back in the future and see how the plants will grow!

Thanks for all of your help! We look forward to seeing you next week!
