There are three elements of the Compton Creek Restoration Project: youth education and employment, community outreach and involvement, and restoration. The project is ultimately designed to set the stage for a full scale restoration of the soft-bottom portion of the Compton Creek. Activities also include trash clean up and the removal of non-native plants.
