Richland Creek Restoration Project

March 10, 2018

Unfortunately, we have to CANCEL tomorrow’s restoration project on the Richland Creek Greenway. Wet weather over the last couple weeks prevented Park’s contractor from completing greenway repairs, and access to our restoration project site is not possible at this time.
We apologize for any inconvenience…

This project was supported through funds provided by The Dan and Margaret Maddox Charitable Fund, and with matching funds donated to RCWA by the Richland Creek community.

RCWA is restoring riparian zones of Richland Creek along McCabe Park. Restoration will take many projects over several years to be completed. Community donations are important and appreciated so we may continue…

riparian – relating to or living or located on the bank of a natural watercourse or sometimes of a lake or other water body.  Plant communities along the river margins and banks are called riparian vegetation. The word riparian is derived from Latin ripa, meaning river bank.

A riparian zone (area) is the interface between land and a river or stream.  Riparain zones are unique habitats important in ecology, and for supporting aquatic and fauna ecosystems.
