DeKalb County and Five Star Partners Lead Headwater Restoration Efforts

DECATUR – DeKalb County illustrated its commitment to sustainability by joining the Five Star Partners for a tree planting on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at Delano Line Park in Decatur. The tree planting is part of a site restoration project to restore the headwaters of a small stream in the Shoal Creek watershed south of Decatur. 

The project encourages participation from local schools, neighborhood associations, non-profit organizations, local businesses, and others to assist with restoration efforts through environmental education field activities at the project site, including invasive plant removal, stream channel measurements, native plant installation and water quality testing.

The project, led by DeKalb County Natural Resources Management Office and Five Star Partners, recently worked with 48 students from Academe of the Oaks, a local high school, to plant trees at Delano Line Park.  The project grant is administered by the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) with funding from the Southern Company.
