Another ravine got some TLC on Saturday – Orchard Street Ravine in Gatewood. Cindi Barker shared the photos, and she reports, “We were planting bare root plants in a huge, just cleared area, and also filling in some gaps in previously planted areas. The weather held off until the end, it was a very productive day.”

Don’t know where Orchard Street Ravine is? Here’s a map.

  3. Gypsyhippie – Couldn’t agree more that we should leave nature alone, but once mankind has messed with it, as happened in Orchard Street Ravine back in the 70′s (and maybe even earlier), don’t we have an obligation to try to return it to it’s natural state? Orchard Street Ravine is much more “natural” now than it was 6 years ago, before restoration efforts began.

  5. Gypsyhippie, I agree with the sentiment of leaving it alone. However, clearing garbage and invasive non native plants is important to restoration projects.
