The Pelly Place Action Committee has been awarded $15,000 for restoration in the Pelly Place Ravine and for youth involvement and education. Details from their application say that this project will return Pelly Place Ravine to its natural state by removing invasive vegetation and restoring the original creek banks. This revitalization would provide a unique natural area for the community and be a key step in providing a series of interconnecting trails between adjacent green spaces in the Morgan Junction neighborhood.
Community building element: Youth from 4 age groups and adults from many ethnic backgrounds will participate together to revitalize the ravine and production of the living history documentary will build intergenerational respect and stronger bonds.
OUTCOMES: Removal of invasives and trash, restoration of native plants, signage, creation of multimedia presentation with photos, audio tapes, slides, video tapes, and promotional materials to be viewed at 2 schools.
Match pledged against the $15,000 award is for $31,145.
