Almost as important as implementing & planting riparian buffers is the regular maintenance of those plantings. To increase the chances for success of a installation, sometimes you have to keep the invasives at bay until your native platings get established. To that end, Corpsmembers worked today keeping reed canary grass at bay around seedlings planted along the Upper Paulins Kill Watershed Cooridor. Under mixed clouds spitting sleet and rain, we got our site/safety briefing at went to work with members of the WallkillRiver Watershed management Group and The Nature Conservancy. Very thankful to our partners at NJ Audubon for providing the opportunity to put our Waders In The Wader certifications to use!
