The "Stewards of the Owen River Gorge" project was designed to provide educational, hands-on materials and experiences to enable students to increase their knowledge of the complete nature of ecology. The re-watering of the riverbed, which was dry due to the diversion of water for hydroelectric generation for 40 years, allowed students to get a first hand knowledge of the process of bringing water, trout, and native vegetation to a de-watered area. Students, parents, and teachers built a trail, and planted willow cuttings and seeds to help stop erosion of old stream beds. Water is now flowing(20 cfs), trout was planted, willows are growing and wildlife has returned. (1992)
