ABSTRACT: A photographic display showing the progress being made on the Fourth Avenue Riparian Habitat and Pathway Project by Green Valley Landscaping is presented. Trees courtesy of Valley Crest Tree Company. The project includes: a pedestrian path; native riparian landscaping; several pools in the storm drain to slow flow velocity; and drainage pipes to percolate storm water back into the soil. Green Valley Landscaping appears to be on schedule for completion of the project by the beginning of February 2009, approximately 90 days since commencement of work.
