There's also plenty of time for students to explore, too. Students have found long-toed salamanders and garter snakes, spotted a nutria swimming in the channel, and found witch's butter fungus already growing on the newly placed logs.
Volunteers are important to the project, too. On a sunny Saturday morning in November, 40 volunteers joined us to continue the planting work in the alluvial fan. Altogether, students and volunteers have planted 3,610 native plants and cuttings.
