This project that I have created is to help increase the biodiversity along some of the riparian areas located southeast of Mallard Point. The project is about planting 50 – 70 balsam poplar trees in some of the open riparian areas. The purpose of the trees is to increase habitat for songbirds, insects, and to improve the stability of the riverbank during floods. Many poplar trees along Fish Creeks east end are reaching the end of their lifecycle since most of those trees are between 70 to 100 years old. The young planted poplars will help mitigate the loss of some of the aging trees . I will be fundraising to purchase the trees.
More to come!
