The Stearn's Trail was restored in the summer of 2020. Bridges, boardwalks and pathways were all replaced and upgraded. Habitat restoration of this riparian forest took place beginning that fall. This area was planted with native plants, trees and shrubs that will provide both habitat and resources for native wildlife. Just beyond the site is a bridge that crosses over the Doan Brook. Help us document the growth of this restored area.
Thank you for helping us track our habitat restoration progress! Adding your photos every time you walk our trails will help us compile a time-lapse video of our habitat restoration over the next year.
