Ecosystem Revitalization

The Ecosystem Revitalization Team had many diverse converging tasks to accomplish this summer, including mapping species along the creek, taking samples of the species back to the lab for DNA analysis, and introducing science to young children in the area. The team identified 15 plant species in Ravina Park, 6 of which were native.
