Riparian East, Part 2

Concept

This project is seeking to enhance the continuation of the Part 1 Riparian East stream, from the east edge of the yard upstream until it enters the ChicoryLane property several hunded yards (250) further east. Whereas the Part 1 segment borders the most developed sections of the property adjacent to the house, yard, and barn, the Part 2 segment borders on the North side a naturlized pollinator field and a small portion of a Native Grasses grassland. On the South side is  a steep bank and hillside with a number of native trees unusual to the ChicoryLane property. These including Beech trees, hemlocks, American and Hop hornbeam. The main focus of the project is enhancement through increasing seleced species, reducing less desirable or invasive ones, and introduce several complementary new species not ccurrently found in that area. It will largely be a streambank and floodplain enhancement, with minimal additons to the steeper hillside. duce several complementary new species not ccurrently found in that area.
