Round Valley Creek, 8/06 - Monitoring Pan of Willow Weaving 1      

Click and scroll on the panorama above to see a 360 degree view!

Our first willow weaving, constructed by Darin Zarbnisky and two Borah High School students in April 04 has survived two major high water events and flooding including spring run-off from record breaking snow fall in winter 05 – 06 followed by scorching temperatures and dry weather during the summer.

The success of this willow weaving inspired us to construct similar methods of armoring raw and actively eroding stream banks elsewhere, including two on Four Mile Creek and two along the Little Salmon River so far. 

Check out Round Valley Creek Willow Weaving, 4/05 to see how it was done.
