Document Description
This project has the dual purpose of enhancement of the Lagunitas Creek watershed through reduction of sedimentation and environmental education for students from West Marin and other schools who are doing the restoration and maintenance work. Students will provide hand work to control cattle trailing and gullies adjacent to riparian fencing within 100' of the stream. They will install willows, brush checkdams and coir fiber logs to detain fine sediment on site and halt-extension and downcutting of gullies. The project manager, Dan McCormick, has a 6-year history of success with similar projects. Students will oversee maintenance of the plantings, which will also give them the opportunity to observe the effects of the work after 1, 2, or 5 years.
