This project engaged four student groups in an experiential creek restoration on Santa Cruz Island. Growing Solutions has constructed a native plant nursery to be used for island restoration projects. This grant allowed a test run of the nursery and educated students by implementing a restoration project on the banks of Cañada Del Puerto, the main watershed on the island. Lessons learned will help with the bigger restoration project at the mouth of the creek which has been included on the WRP Work Plan.
