Streams have changed, can we change them back?

Stories from old timers reveal substantial changes to our streams. Can native plants help to reverse this? Elizabeth Steele explains the importance of getting rain water into the soil and how native plants influence stream health. By getting water into the soil, it can be released slowly into the stream long after a storm, resulting in stronger, healthier stream flows. This can create better habitat for endangered stream life, and a healthier stream for people to enjoy.
