Redmon Pond Restoration

The Redomon Pond is a freshwater pond located in Bandon, Oregon. This pond is a area of heavy traffic for migratory birds and local birds alike. Bandon high shcool students have been working with Science teacher Trent Hatfield to retore habitats by eliminating invasive plant species around the area and helping to plant native plant species that are under represented in the area's habitat. Further plans include an intrerpretive Wilderness trail with notices and cautions of flora and fauna. The pictures below show students listening to lectures on the state of the Pond's habitat and student working on site at Redmon Pond.
