Austin’s Creekside Restoration Program

The riparian zone is the transition area between the aquatic environment and the terrestrial environment. Healthy riparian buffers with mature vegetation provide a wide range of critical ecological and water quality services.
Removal of this native vegetative community and excessive mowing in these streamside areas degrades water quality and reduce wildlife habitat. By changing maintenance practices, adding “Grow Zone” buffers, and restoring natural plants along Austin’s waterways they began the process of healing urban streams and providing a greenbelt network for wildlife and future generations.

          This demonstrates a proactive approach to improving water quality and wildlife habitat. By restoring natural vegetation along waterways, the program contributes to the revitalization of urban streams and the creation of a sustainable greenbelt network for future generations and wildlife.
