Project Summary

James Grigg, Director of Operations, Facilities Services, Drs. Checo Colon-Gaud, Alan Harvey, & James H. Roberts, Department of Biology ($27,850.00)

The next step in the rehabilitation of Beautiful Eagle Creek was performing targeted maintenance in order to enhance habitat variability at the site. To achieve this, they employed a systematic removal and environmentally sustainable control of excessive weeds/grasses that are currently overtaking the system and place small patches of mineral substrates (i.e., rocks) in select sections of the creek in order to increase the availability of stable substrates that will lead to increased diversity of aquatic organisms. In doing so, they continued the already established education/outreach and research/monitoring efforts ongoing at Beautiful Eagle Creek by developing additional documentary videos and presentation materials (i.e., posters, fliers, website content).
