PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

While upgrading several of the camping sites parking areas the owner was required to restore a small creek that runs into San Leandro River. The requirement came from a permit needed from the California Fish and Game to continue construction so close to the creek. The main portion of the creek being worked on receives runoff from Hwy 9 and will potentially keep pollution from entering the river. Large swaths of English ivy and Himalayan Blackberry were removed by non chemical methods. Then creek was replanted with riparian and redwood understory plant palettes. ECI will be performing continued maintenance to ensure the invasive species are eradicated and the new plants are established. After the successful creek restoration, the owner is planning on restoring more of the property. He says customers and staff enjoy the experience of a seeing the redwood understory restored.
