City of Springfield, Summer 2020
Project Description: Native Plant Landscape Maintenance
Partners: City of Springfield
Through an agreement with the City of Springfield, Watershed Conservation Corps (WCC) will assist in Springfield’s increased effort to maintain and support native plant growth while taking measures to control invasive species populations primarily along creeks and greenway trails. Six project locations will help to improve three urban streams in springfield, project sites and streams include:
- Fassnight Creek – between Jefferson Avenue and Campbell Street
- Jordan Creek – between Bennet Street and Grand Street, between Grand Street and Mount Vernon Street and between Grant Avenue and Fort Avenue
- South Creek – Between Campbell Avenue and Kansas Expressway and between National Avenue and Campbell Avenue
WCC will continue to assist our partners in improving native habitats which can be particularly scarce in urban and suburban settings. WCC will provide services for the City of Springfield aimed to improve the following: recreation opportunities, transportation infrastructure, tourism destinations, and quality-of-life necessities. Through this project and others in the future, WCC will continue to connect people to our beautiful outdoors, each other, and the places they want to go.
