Improving Habitats for Wildlife
Decrease Sedimentation Increase Wildlife
Duck Creek runs through the middle of Collins Park and has been significantly altered through subsurface culverts, resulting in degraded fish and wildlife habitat. Through this feasibility project, this site has significant potential to provide improved habitat for a variety of native species.
About the Project
