Pop-Up Hike: Darrow Road Stream Restoration Project
January 31 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Join us for a pop-up hike and site walk to the Darrow Road Stream Restoration area with Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners in the city of Hudson. The 52.5-acre Darrow Road Park, owned by the City of Hudson, features approximately 37 acres of wetland, hosting the impaired Darrow Park ditch stream. The stream faces challenges such as a history of dredging, channelization and in-stream sediment loading, resulting in water quality degradation.
The area was possibly a braided wetland channel at one point but stormwater and anthropogenic influence makes it almost impossible to return it to that state completely. One goal of this project is to provide ecological lift of the site (restoring the site back to a state of ecological functionality so it can support habitats for various species of wildlife). We’ll traverse the quality wetlands, view the channelized stream sections, and consider the invasive plants in the area.
