Students Lend a Hand in Restoration
100 5th grade students worked hard through the cold and the rain at Willow-Witt Ranch on Grizzly Peak to help restore wetland meadows. The 440 acre property holds approximately 100 acres of wetland meadows. Due to past cattle grazing much of the wetland vegetation has disappeared but, with the help of these students 3,500 willow cuttings were planted into the ground. While students visited the ranch they also joined the Klamath Bird Observatory to help assess bird habitat and conduct a bird survey. During this, the students used binoculars to observe the local birds such as a Mountain Chickadee nest in a nearby snag. To read the full Daily Tidings article click here.
