Project Description:Develop a mature bottomland hardwood wetland ecosystem in perpetuity dominated by desirable mast-producing species, with associated native tree, shrub, and groundcover species typical of pre-settlement conditions along the upper to mid Trinity River basin of Texas.
Removal of drainage ditches, construction of moist soil units, and the deauthorization of federal levees restores hydrology to project area. Stream restoration conducted through natural channel design and vegetation plantings reestablishes previous stream functions, aquatic life and stabilizes sediment movement.
