700 willows were planted on May 5/6 by a group of club volunteers under the guidance of TUC biologist Lesley Peterson.

This weekend  - 7 weeks later - we dropped by to check on the progress of the young willows.  We had to look hard to find even one stake that wasn't showing signs of life.  Almost all them had a fair bit of growth.  There is a lot of grass growing, and there are no signs that anyone has been in the area.
