Wetland Restoration Begins at Kingfisher Point
8/7/2018

City of Fort Collins
At Kingfisher Point Natural Area's Gadwall Pond, you'll see restoration underway for the next few months. Instead of steep banks, a more natural and gently sloping wetland edge is being created. You'll see heavy equipment re-grading the northeast side of the pond. Then this fall, wetland plants will be installed. The plants were grown from seeds that were collected by Natural Areas volunteers, thank you! The plant mix is designed to support pollinators and other native wildlife. The new habitat will host a variety of waterfowl, marsh birds, native bees, and butterflies. When the project is finished there will be an additional two acres of wetlands and three acres of upland shrub and grass thicket at Kingfisher Point Natural Area. No trail closures will be necessary.
