Our managed wetland has been weeded and pruned by one of our Albany High School EDSET (Environmental Design Science Engineering and Technology) student interns.  Staff, volunteers and EDSET interns  have been replacing the decomposing acacia fence  with a split bamboo railing to keep foot traffic off newly planted upland native grasses. along with bee and butterfly plants.  We also  planted  some water loving willows and a new tree, Box Elder, Acer negundo to provide more diversity for the habitat. Pacific chorus frog tadpoles were spotted in the shallow pool.
