Last weekend, Trout Unlimited and Metro Planning members collaborated with the larger Eugene Stream TeamWhilamut Natural Area project to replant a section of bank on the Willamette to offer shade, buffer surface pollutants, and stop erosion of the banks.
Last summer, TU Chapter 678 and Metro Planning adopted a section of stream bank along the Willamette River in Alton Baker park. It was an ugly job, but members managed to reclaim almost 200 feet of nasty blackberry infested riparian area by hand.
We managed to get some airtime on KVAL as well. I’m the weird looking guy in the red T-Shirt.
