Join TUC for our Piper Creek Solstice Tree Planting.
The Piper Creek Fish Habitat Restoration Project is a multi-year project funded by the RBC Blue Water Fund, and the Environmental Damages Fund, with the goal of improving riparian and aquatic health in Piper Creek, a small tributary of Wascasoo Creek, within the Red Deer River Watershed.
Piper Creek flows through agricultural farmland and through the southern portion of the City of Red Deer between 40th Ave and 50th Ave before meeting Waskasoo Creek near the Greyhound Bus station downtown. Piper Creek has been affected by various land uses such as urbanization and agriculture, which have left some of its riparian areas in a state of poor health.
In order to improve riparian health, Trout Unlimited Canada, ReThink Red Deer, Cows and Fish, the City of Red Deer, and members of the Piper Creek Restoration Agriculture Project have partnered to improve conditions along Piper Creek within the PCRA Project site.
Volunteers will be able to help TUC plant a variety of native shrub species along the creek to improve riparian health. Prior to the work beginning, volunteers will receive an introduction the project and an overview of the evening’s activities. TUC will provide gloves and all of the planting equipment required for this event.
TUC will provide sandwiches and juice boxes to volunteers as well as a jug of water to refill water bottles for all volunteers.
