Our Conservation Management Area (CMA) underwent some major transformations at the end of 2020! After nearly a decade in the works, Hazel England, GSWA Director of Land Stewardship, and Mike Devos of Indigenous Ingenuities led this wetland project. Come hear about the important restoration efforts that took place to help restore our CMA closer to its natural state. Hazel and Mike will walk us through the restoration of the Silver Brook, the creation of 360,000 square feet of vernal habitat, the plugging a 350-foot drainage ditch and so much more that occurred over the course of five frantic weeks. Additionally, you will learn of the changes brought about by this project, like the increased water being held on the property (that’s a good thing!) and the ongoing stewardship that will now be require need to manage these changes.
