Project Overview

The overall purpose of the project is to establish native vegetation for the benefit of wildlife and citizens of Woodland.  The project will also include the design and installation of interpretive signage. The educational value of the signage will increase the value of the project for the public. The plantings will improve habitat and food sources for wildlife, and improve aesthetics, wildlife viewing, and along with the interpretive signage, provide education opportunities for citizens.  The project site with its proximity to residential units and wildlife habitat provides a unique experience for Woodland area residents and educate them about their natural surroundings; as well as enhance habitat for resident and migratory wildlife.  Additionally, the native vegetation may help filter runoff, improving water quality.
