Willever Lake Planting

 Well yesterday I was able to attend my T.U. chapter's planting of the Old lake bed of the former willever lake. The dam was removed last year and the plantings are to help the stream bank stabilize and well, to bring the lake bed back to what it used to be before the dam.  We had a great turn out, and we were helped from the NY city chapter of T.U., check them out Thank You guys and it was a pleasure to meet you.
  Some how I ended up doing stream bed restoration instead of planting but hey, whatever helps. There were several nymphs and caddis larvae on the rocks we moved. Sorry no pics of them, as I was working.  Its a shame we dont have those rocks like they do in death valley.   But with all the willow slips planted and stream area revitalized and flowing "correctly" we wrapped and had lunch.  Thank you to all who attend and contributed. Hope to see everyone again next time.
