The Riparian Enhancement Project at the Women's Faculty Club of Strawberry Creek

Women's Faculty Club Riparian Vegetation Enhancement Area

Planted 2016

Over 600 individuals of 32 different native plant species were planted in the riparian corridor and upper banks of Strawberry Creek on the north side of the Women's Faculty Club. This site is challenging because of the presence of redwood trees, which are not native to the local area and tend to suppress native vegetation due to their water needs and the deep shade they produce (read this article for a more in depth explanation). Despite the challenging conditions, the plants are thriving (with some extra irrigation) and once they are well-established, the site will serve as plant stock for the Native Plant Nursery.
