Prickly Pear Land Trust’s Sevenmile Creek Project Continues to Deliver Impressive Results

Prickly Pear Land Trust’s Sevenmile Creek restoration project continues to deliver impressive results. From a PPLT social media post: PPLT’s restoration of 45 acres of floodplain and wetland ecosystem on Sevenmile Creek increased the storage capacity of the stream by almost 22 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Because of the restoration of wetlands and the floodplain on Sevenmile Creek, all of this water will be soaked into the ground and not sent flowing towards hundreds of homes and businesses in the Helena Valley during a large spring rain event.
