TextOn Nov. 3, the Bouverie Preserve’s Project GROW kicked off its third year. Project GROW is a partnership between Audubon Canyon Ranch, the Southern Sonoma County Resource Conservation District, and the Center for Land-Based Learning’s SLEWS Program (Student and Landowner Education and Watershed Stewardship) to restore eight acres of oak woodlands at the Glen Ellen nature preserve.
Students from Sonoma Valley High School planted 230 oak woodland understory plants (Toyon, Sticky Monkeyflower, California Honeysuckle and Wood Rose). The plants were planted in two-meter square plots so that Bouverie staff, students and volunteers can monitor the plots for survival rates. Each plot contains 10 plants – two Toyon, four California Honeysuckle, two Sticky Monkeyflower, and two Wood Rose. Rice straw was then placed in the plots to help keep weeds out and moisture in, and keep roots warm over the winter months.
