Cache Valley Wetland Restoration Project

A wonderful family has decided to restore the wetland habitat in their backyard. Dr. John and Ann Ribera have the passion and perserverance to do what is necessary to reclaim their land, that has been invaded by noxious weeds. In the spring of 2008, they plan to plant wetland vegetation and create a buffer zone along neighboring Spring Creek to prevent bank erosion. When the Ribera’s bought their property 7 years ago, their backyard was a gorgeous wetland full of many species of birds and other wildlife. Due to drought conditions, they slowly lost the wetland vegetation and ponds that attracted the water fowl. Currently, I am performing a pro bono wetland delineation on the Ribera’s property that must be approved by the Army Corps of Engineers. In 2008, we hope to procure grants from government agencies and non-government organizations as well.
