Land trust works to restore degraded land along Sevenmile Creek

PPLT has begun a project that aims to restore the area, which stretches northwest from the intersection of Birdseye Road and Head Lane.

When Prickly Pear Land Trust acquired property along Sevenmile Creek as part of the Peaks to Creeks Initiative in 2016, there were evident signs of degradation along the banks. Erosion and weeds overtook the property, and sedimentation deeply affected the creek, which is a main tributary to Tenmile Creek, one of the Helena Valley’s primary water sources.

PPLT has begun a project that aims to restore the area, which stretches northwest from the intersection of Birdseye Road and Head Lane north of Helena. With the necessary time and funding, PPLT hopes to restore the 350-acre property as a thriving wetland, help bolster biodiversity in the area and rehabilitate the creek back to its natural state.
