Beaver Creek rehab

Roughly two-thirds of the trees that were previously introduced in 2014 survived being planted in the Bear Creek area, South of Lake Capote on County Road 524. The trees are intended to support environmental diversity and reduce erosion along the creek.
Fisheries Biologist Ben Zimmerman, and Air Quality Technician Naomi Begay were one of a few dozen tribal employees from the Environmental Programs Division, TERO and Wildlife Resources Division, who chipped in to help EPD Senior Water Quality Specialist, Tim Funk plant new trees in the Bear Creek area, Wednesday, April 25.
Youngling trees sat beside cages, intended to protected them once planted, so that each of the small trees will have a chance to survive the wildlife that live in the area. Most of the trees being replanted were Cottonwood, Golden Current, Chokecherry, Silver Buffalo Berry, Skunk Wood Sumac, and Dog Wood.
