Thanks for undertaking this great project!
Please remove the non-native eucalyptus trees and replant native riparian tree species. These eucalyptus trees are contributing to dewatering the creek, damaging the soils underneath with toxins, and reducing the flood flow capacity of the creek where they are growing into the channel.

Let's keep some of our non-native eucalyptus and other foliage please! Much of the existing growth provides nesting areas for birds and likely helps avoid erosion. The trees the Acterra people have planted are hardly thigh high twigs after a couple years of growth. The red shoulder hawks can't roost there. They like the eucalyptus tree though.
