Board donates $75,000 to reservoir restoration project
The mitigation of the old and now unused open water reservoirs on Crawford Hill got a major boost from Creston Community Forest, which has evolved into a major promoter of outdoor recreation in recent years. Mitigation of the site will mean restoring portions of the property to a more natural state and converting the old reservoirs into small ecosystems, such as marshes. A large bat house on the site will help reduce the mosquito population. The donation is part of a greater effort by the CCF to create outdoor recreation and educational facilities like walking paths and outdoor education opportunities.
