Saving the Riverbank in Wayland
Students from Wayland High School recently helped us with a slope restoration project along the Sudbury River at our Greenways Reservation.
During a workday on April 25, the students repaired a fence along the riverbank to prevent free-running dogs from trampling vegetation on a steep slope. They also planted lowbush blueberries and Pennsylvania sedge to restore the native vegetation that will stabilize the slope and provide good wildlife habitat.
This stretch of the Sudbury River has been federally designated as a Wild & Scenic River, and thanks to the efforts of these student volunteers, we hope to prevent further degradation of the area.
