Restoration & replanting of street-runoff harvesting basins

February 11, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Time & Place:
9:30am to prep, meeting at 813 N. 9th Ave before moving to the work site
10:30am we begin work with the youth on the south side of 601 N. Stone Ave, along 5th Street.

We’ll be working with youth from the Ironwood Tree Experience to restore, enhance, & replant street-runoff harvesting basins on the south side of Cirrus Visual at 601 N. Stone Ave. We’ll be working on the south side of the property on 5th Street between Stone Ave and Ash Avenue.

The basins were originally installed in 2009, but the basin banks were never stabilized with rock, so they have since silted in.

We will remove the sediment from the basins and rock the banks. We will harvest unneeded rock from the bottom of neighborhood green infrastructure basins, thereby keeping public infrastructure rock with public infrastructure, while enhancing all the infrastructure.

Brad Lancaster and other neighborhood foresters will supervise and instruct.

Work will include: water-harvesting earthwork, rockwork, planting, mulching, pruning, seeding.

Bring hand tools if you have ’em, otherwise we will provide.

If work goes quicker than expected we may do a little more work near University Blvd and 9th Ave afterward.
