Project in Progress: Restoring the upper arms of Devereux Slough

Presented by Lisa Stratton

Lisa will present “From Golf Course to Wetland,” a brief (17-minute) film about how the restoration project evolved, followed by a presentation on the project in action — from moving the dirt to building the bridges, planting the plants and documenting the functions for birds and hydrology.
