Drainage Basin Clean-up

This winter we have been working on cleaning up the Blue River over flow basins.  Inside the river bend (holes 2,3,4&7) many trees in the drainage basins have been taken down. The clearing is being done to return the course to its original design of a “links style” course.  Over time, these areas will be returned to a mixture of native grasses, wildflowers, and the present river birches.  The top three photos show the work that has been done and the bottom photo is an example of what it will look like.
