Abstract

We studied the changes over time in the riparian zone of the Reecer Creek Flood Plain Restoration Project in Ellensburg, Washington, which is a stream restoration project constructed in 2011. We studied the populations of native versus nonnative willows and the diversity of soil invertebrate species. We have documented the return of soil invertebrates to Reecer Creek and an establishment of volunteer native willows since 2011.
