As part of our Watershed Stewardship Program in Alpine, Back Country Land Trust has cleared over one-quarter of an acre of flammable, non-native Arundo from this property at the "bottom" of Alpine's watershed. Now we're ready to restore this creek-side habitat to it's former natural beauty!
Come lend a hand and help keep Alpine's watershed clean & green!

Event Update: In two hours, our small team of three planted 30 native trees and 400 cuttings along this stretch of creek! We also hauled away two truckloads of trash, including 6 tires, 4 tire sidewalls, a toilet, and a stolen ATM (which was turned in to police for evidence). Special thanks to Endangered Habitats Conservancy for partnering with us on this imporant wildlife and habitat enhancement project.
