DVCD has been very pleased with the accomplishments of our hardworking crew . Even with all of this great progress there is still a staggering amount of work to be done in the future. Also the crew has generated more than $500,000 in matching funds from willows harvested for several projects. This money we recieved from ARRA to pay for the crew is used as matching funds for other grants that keep the district funded for additional restoration projects. We would like to continue the success we have had with the crew this past year and at this point we did not receive the funding we were hoping for to keep the crew running non stop this year. As of April 2, 2010 the crew is on a break for 5 weeks and will return to help with the spraying of noxious weeds in the area. If anyone knows of any other sources of funding that may work for our crew your help would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully we will be able to keep our crew and their jobs safe.
