On November 17, six River Watchers from Travis High learned about a beneficial, riparian native grass called Eastern Gamagrass and started planting EG transplants along an eroded bank.

On November 19, six River Watchers from Travis High met with Adam Atkins, a Landscape Architect from RVi Planning + Landscape Architecture.
