Restoring Vegetation on Island in Pond C

Timothy Ma
Troop 153, Fremont

The goal of my project was to repopulate an Island B of Pond C at Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon with native plants and clear it of non-native plants. The area was elliptic in shape and approximately 1500 square feet including hilly terrain covered with weeds and other dry plants

My project will benefit the Math Science Nucleus and Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon by removing plants such as dock and burs which get caught in fish and animals and also clogs the drainage. The second half consisted of restoring native plants such as tules, willows, buckeyes, and oaks. This will bring back native wildlife. This will also be an educational experience to the many student visitors by educational tours and field trips to the area.
