Rock Creek Acquisition — The Nature Conservancy in Washington

As I adopted Nick Altadonna (TNC’s Jap Washington Stewardship Coordinator) round a pointy curve, I set free an audible gasp. The panorama had modified dramatically to disclose a canyon lined in timber, in sharp distinction to the golden plains that had been in sight moments in the past.

The street drops down into the canyon and crosses Rock Creek, the namesake of the protect that was additionally our vacation spot. A lot of the land that makes up Rock Creek Protect was acquired within the Nineties and early 2000s with the intention to defend vibrant oak-pine woodlands, deciduous riparian habitats, cliff-talus slopes, together with stretches of vital aquatic habitat within the creek itself. The inexperienced speckling alongside the canyon revealed itself to be a whole lot of Oregon white oaks and ponderosa pine, teeming with wildlife.
