As part of our efforts to save salamanders, the boys decided to take on planting a hillside outside of where our classes were this spring. The runoff from the hill feeds into this stream.
There's some pretty bad erosion from kids walking on the hill and from the rain washing down the hillside with no thing to stop it. We are hoping to replant the hillside, with the help of NovaScoop's 4-H club. These are the areas of concern: 1. the top- where there is only a hydrangea and where the down spout is located. 2. the central piece which is mostly clay in part to full sun on about a 40 degree hillside. 3. the lower section which has a retaining wall that needs to be addressed 4. the area below the retaining wall that is just in front of the door
