Thanks for helping us monitor this stream bank restoration. Urban areas have roads, driveways, and houses that create impervious surface where stormwater runs off more rapidly. In addition, this sort of development often also fills in or redirects streams, and this can also cause increased runoff. One consequence of this is increased erosion downstream of urban development. This restoration work will reestablish the river's location from 2010, establish a floodplain bench, and encourage a wooded riparian area. Photos from this site will help us monitor the functioning of this restored stream bank. You can also help monitor other sites: Astorhurst wetland, Bonnie Park Wetland Restoration, Bonnie Park Dam Removal, Brookside stormwater bioretention, Garfield Park pond, and Euclid Creek headwater restoration at Acacia Reservation. This site is not currently ADA accessible.
We manage over 24,000 acres around the city of Cleveland, Ohio, USA. As we restore habitat, we need help capturing images of how the site changes, to see if it is functioning as intended. We would love your help taking pictures at these sites where recent restoration work has occurred.
