What a great start to 2022! Our awesome Watershed Steward Intern, Abby, is assisting the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s Stream Team and other volunteers in planting almost 150 native trees along London Creek in Brentwood for stream bank improvement and to prevent erosion.
Even though Brentwood is almost an hour’s drive from Beaver Lake, sediment from erosion in this area can travel all the way from these tributaries into the White River, and then Beaver Lake. Projects like this can play a big role in keeping soil in place in these streambanks. (Photos courtesy of NWA Democrat-Gazette/Andy Shupe)
