PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Ecological Concerns Inc collaborated with the Town of Los Altos Hills to secure an $83,000 grant for restoration of a seasonal creek. The native habitats along Adobe Creek in Edith Park were overgrown with invasive species, compromising the area’s biodiversity. By removing invasive species and planting native varieties, the increased native plant diversity along the restored stretch of Adobe Creek and boosted habitat quality along the riparian corridor. Local students volunteered for the planting and ECI provided a hands-on training to compliment their Environmental Science classes. ECI’s crew implemented the erosion control plan for the site, and follow-up maintenance was provided. ECI also developed the Mitigation Monitoring Plan for this project, and performed success monitoring.
