Native Plants/Invasive Weed Removal
Non-native, invasive plants crowd out native plants destroying the habitat for native wildlife. Invasive vines can strangle and kill trees, potentially destroying the entire forest. LFWA is committed to manually removing invasives and restoring native habitat. We are working with the County Weed Warrior program and run bi-monthly invasive cleanups, as well as periodic targeted clean-ups.
Stormwater runoff - caused by increasing development, new roads, driveways, parking lots and sidewalks - is one of the greatest threats to the health of the Little Falls watershed. LFWA is working with local governments and residents to assess the problem and to encourage the adoption of low impact solutions to control runoff by both residents and municipalities.
Trash choked streams start with trash on the ground. LFWA is committed to cleaning not only the streams in our annual stream clean-up day but fighting trash at the source and on the streets and sidewalks. We are looking for people to adopt a part of the watershed to keep it trash-free.
Education and Outreach
Educating residents of the watershed about the challenges nature faces in an urban environment is a primary goal of the Alliance. We have monthly speakers on a variety of topics of interest to the watershed. We are also available to school, community or youth groups to lead a stream walk, give a talk, plan a clean-up or free vine choked trees. Contact us if you would like us to come to your group.
