Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study analyzes a restoration project that was developed on Ward's Creek in 2013 to address concerns over eroding banks and degraded riparian habitat. The goal was to improve the riparian and aquatic health of the creek through the use of bioengineering and natural-based approaches. Since 2014, the site has been flooded many times and the restoration efforts helped to alleviate flooding downstream and has become a demonstration site for bioengineering restoration as well as an opportunity to engage the public on nature-based adaptation solutions.
