WildLink Club Works to Restore Riparian Habitat at Riverdance Farms
Thirteen WildLink Club members from Turlock High and Pitman High worked together to restore native riparian vegetation along the Merced River at Riverdance Farms near Livingston. The organic farm and the Audubon Society are working very hard to restore the balance of nature to help the farm thrive without the need for pesticides and fertilizers and boos the habitat for native birds. Our kids planted several hundred trees and shrubs on this day and helped install drip irrigation for the plants until they become firmly established. It was great to make a close connection to the river that we visit so much in Yosemite Valley and so little so close to home.
