In this blog we’ll talk about human activities that have impacts (either beneficial or harmful) on the ecosystems, plant/animal communities, and ecosystem processes of the Lake Wingra Watershed. We’ll also look at ways in which ecological restoration provides a way to produce desirable outcomes for plant communities/ecosystems.
Restoration is hard work but just as important, restoration is fun. It’s a great way to volunteer and to get to know your neighbors, and you can increase your plant and bird ID skills in the process. So, we’ll shine a spotlight on those community-based restoration projects that do a good job and are a model of civic involvement.
Our blog beat includes the springs, the Lake Wingra Watershed, storm water management, and neighborhood-based restoration projects, and other environmental activities in the watershed.
