Science does not have to be limited to scientists in laboratories or in the field. Anyone can be involved in science to help better the world. A community group in Sudbury, the Junction Creek Stewardship Committee, is comprised of community members and local agencies that are working together to restore the health of an urban creek. This volunteer based committee is cleaning up Junction Creek and restoring life. One exciting component that they are working on is to create new wetland habitat along the creek.
Over the next few months, this community group will work with experts and use scientific principles and knowledge to build habitat essential for the ecosystem of Junction Creek. This video demonstrates how these “new” wetlands are being built and techniques to support plants and animals that will live within them.
