2015 BOW RIVER CHAPTER TREE-WRAP & RIVER CLEAN UP

BRC23

Over the course of 2 weekend volunteers from Bow River Chapter & the Angling OutfittersAssociation of Alberta wrapped in excess of 200 cottonwoods with stucco wire on Burnco Gravel Pit, Legacy Island and a number of surrounding properties.  Wrapping mature trees such as the Cottonwoods along the Bow River with a metal wire protects them from beaver damage and downing which in some areas has devastated riparian vegetation along the river edge.

 

Thank BRC24you to all volunteers:
