Linda Creek restoration work day takes place Oct. 13

The city of Roseville Adopt-A-Creek program is once again on a mission to restore an eroded bank along Linda Creek in the Meadow Oaks Neighborhood - and they need your help.

The city is partnering with the Meadow Oaks Neighborhood Association, which adopted the section of creek that runs through their neighborhood. Last year, the association helped repair an eroding creek bank using eco-friendly bioengineering methods.

"The repaired creek bank made it through winter and was truly a success thanks to the partnering of the city and volunteers, which numbered 22 MONA neighbors who provided a total of 200 hours over a month span," said Adopt-A-Creek Coordinator Scott Dietrich in a press release.

This year's project provides people of all ages a chance to help, he said. Volunteers will re-vegetate an eroded bank that was repaired and stabilized by the city's Open Space Department. There will also be a demonstration of bioengineering techniques and volunteers can help clean up the area.

"This is a great opportunity for families and neighbors to come together and volunteer their time to enhance and restore their neighborhood creek," Dietrich said.
