Brush Creek Habitat Restoration and Stormwater Education Project

Project #: 508342  –   Updated: December 26, 2016

Project Summary

Invasive exotic shrub honey suckle will be removed along a section of Brush Creek adjacent of an old oxbow in Kansas City Missouri. Expanding on previous work to restore the oxbow island to native vegetation honey suckle removal will allow native understory riparian vegetation to be released from competition and regenerate on it's own. At the end of the project 5 acres of land will be cleared and a trail established so residents can access and appreciate the native spring ephemerals. This work was supported in part by a grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation.
