Restoration Event at Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center

  • Written by Valley View Staff
With low fog draped over the farm fields at Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center, a small but mighty team of volunteers extracted dozens of spirea (Spiraea douglasii), red-osier dogwood (Cornus sericea), and twinberry (Lonicera involucrata) plants from their icy pots. As the volunteers got to work, the sun burned off the fog and melted away the glittering frost, leading to a bright and almost spring-like January day. Among the volunteers were Oxbow’s Restoration Technician & Volunteer Coordinator, Dawn Huss, plus volunteers Tyler Ambrose, Anvita Deenadayalan, and Kyle Leonard.
