Flood Plain /Riparian

History:

Started in 1984 after approaching area counselor Col Kleinschmidt. The whole area was leased to Russ Hinze for grazing and I asked Council to revoke a portion of the lease. They agreed, but big Russ refused to relocate fencing, so I did it myself. Council supplied 150 Plants but ¾ of them were lost to frost. The few people that helped lost interest, but I persisted buying the plants myself and after many years, council came onboard again because of my persistence and the project grew from there.
