Evans Creek Preserve is now a 213-acre area that offers wildflower meadows, wetlands, wildlife, forested uplands, 3.5 miles of pedestrian-only loop trails and precious respite from the noise and bustle of everyday urban living.
The goal of this project is to remove the blackberries and replace them with native plants. These areas are now on their way to becoming visually attractive for humans, providing varied habitat for wildlife, and enhancing the ecosystem in other ways.
Illahee Stormwater Pond
A large wildflower-filled stormwater pond in the Illahee community, which was adopted in response to a neighborhood outcry to protect the lupines that create a dazzling display inside this pond each Spring.
