The purpose of this project is to increase fish habitat, lower instream temperatures, and increase bank stabilization through the propagation and planting of willow trees. This project could be done in a number of ways, pairing an outing to Silver Creek to plant willows and a classroom visit to talk about the importance of fish habitat at Silver Creek.
