She provided SAWIG with expertise in the planning stages and also provided her own milkweed plants for the garden. Her website and photographs have helped SAWIG and she assisted staff throughout the summer with weeding and monitoring the monarch life stages. Denise also assisted in certifying the garden as a monarch waystation with Monarch Watch and provided a sign for the garden.
2019: Jamie Rix
As a landowner, Jamie has partnered with us on an enhancement project on his property in 2018 and 2019. Jamie has helped us transport hay bales, plant trees, water trees and shrubs, and lent us his tools and equipment. This is a great example of how landowners and watershed groups can work together to achieve benefits for the environment.
