Piper Creek Restoration Work

Volunteers from Royal Bank of Canada, Central Alberta Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Red Deer Naturalists and Friends of the Red Deer River spent today planting trembling Aspen, Saskatoons, Yellow Willow and a few other native plants along Piper Creek. Bank stabilization has been completed in several areas along side culvert removal and a general cleanup along the river. The local beavers have damed up several reaches that have allowed for beaver ponds that are deep and some current! This area is right beside the Piper Creek Gardens that the City of Red Deer allow citizens of Red Deer to farm.

Lesley Peterson and Elliot Lindsay from Trout Unlimited Canada did a great job organizing all the plants, fencing, mulch and tools. We got most of the work completed by lunch time. As the saying goes, many hands make light work!

Karen and I had a great time helping out!
