RRWC is an active member of the Bear Creek Restoration Initiative (BCRI), a network of organizations partnering to improve conditions in and along Bear Creek. In late August a four-acre fire burned along the Bear Creek Greenway near Dean Creek Road. Prior invasive plant species removal by BCRI partner agencies aided in fuels reduction in the area and played a part in helping firefighters access and control the fire.
Since its formation in 2018, the BCRI has been focused on the restoration of the lands and waters in the Bear Creek corridor which is integral to community well-being. We just launched the new BCRI website! Check it out and learn out about ongoing restoration efforts, meet the working group and supporters, and explore relevant issue papers, including brand new papers on reseeding efforts post-fire.
