Eagle Scout Project Transforms Upstream Section of Tocaloma Floodplain Project

SPAWN volunteer Ryland Lewis completed his final Eagle Scout project by leading a volunteer group at SPAWN’s Tocaloma floodplain restoration site on Saturday, March 13.

Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, SPAWN volunteer Ryland Lewis completed his final Eagle Scout project by leading a volunteer group of Scout friends and their families to help SPAWN remove hemlock, Himalayan blackberry, and other invasive plants on a section of the upstream portion of our Tocaloma floodplain restoration project along Lagunitas Creek.

Following removal of the invasive plants, the crew planted native plants which are good at quickly covering ground and forming thick root systems such as Santa Barbara sedge, creeping wildrye, and coyote brush.

SPAWN would like to thank Ryland and his family and friends for helping to transform this section of invasive plants into a native plant oasis for wildlife! The following pictures show what a dedicated crew of people can do to transform an area in just a few hours of focused team work.
