Erosion of the Bushkill Creek in a stand of old growth forest (Henry’s Woods) was undermining 20 mature trees and adding sediment to the stream. Henry’s Woods is one of the most popular natural attractions in the Lehigh Valley and the effects of human impact have contributed to the erosion problem. This Growing Greener project included the installation of erosion control devices to stabilize the stream bank as well as the installation of trail barriers and native restoration plantings to prevent future erosion.

Downed railings along the stream, since repaired.
