Willow Creek Bosque -- Phase III
This is approximately 80 acres located near the parking lot off Willow Creek

On Dec. 8, Restoration Solutions started clearing invasive species from approximately 40 acres of the Willow Creek Bosque.
Salt cedar and Russian olive will be extracted from the ground. They will then be chipped and spread on the ground.
