Cedar River Oxbow Wetland 79 Enhancement Project
In April of 2001 over 5,000 native trees and shrubs were planted along the new channel and throughout the three acres of riparian area of the Wetland 79 - Cedar River Oxbow site. The goal of the planting is to provide forested habitat for aquatic and terrestrial animals, and to discourage non-native invasive plants. A diverse mix of native species was planted with an emphasis on fast growing, early successional deciduous plants. The planting was done by workers from the Washington Conservation Corps and Jobs for the Environment.
