Successful restoration efforts bloom at Odiak

Successful restoration efforts bloom around Odiak pond.

bioswale plantingBe sure to see Odiak watershed in bloom! We are pleased to show off the results of restoration efforts that have been in motion since 2009. With the generous support of our partners, we have removed an old railroad culvert and restored an open stream channel, built a bioswale to filter stormwater run-off, and established a native plant garden for education and collecting native plant seeds for re-vegetation efforts. More on these projects can be found here.

bioswale irisWe will be showing off these projects and celebrating our community partners and volunteers who made it all possible on Wednesday, June 24 at 11 a.m. next to the bioswale behind the Cordova Community Medical Center. We will unveil the newly installed education and mosaic signs created by local students. We appreciate our generous business partner Copper Valley Telecom who has invited us to continue on to their community BBQ immediately following the celebration.
