Go back to the Tour Return of the Wetland (S)
Off to the west is the appropriately named Ammo Hill where the Air Force's munitions once were stored. A bobcat was recently seen there… exploring the base of the hill. If you look back towards the base of Reservoir Hill where you'll be headed next….. you get a good view of the white building which is now the native plant nursery which is run under a contract with the Army Corps of Engineers. Thousands of native plants are grown there… and then placed in the ground by many people… including citizen volunteers… and the hard-working teams from an organization called STRAW… which stands for Students and Teachers Restoring A Watershed. STRAW involves K-12 students from Sonoma and Marin Counties. The students learn all about nature and habitat restoration… and they make a huge contribution here. In the past two years, STRAW involved more than 1,400 students who've put more than 3,000 native plants in their brand new homes. Up ahead… a U-turn by a beautiful deep-water pond. It's not part of the restoration project… but you'll enjoy the view.
