The $2 million project used a series of multi-layered cages filled with rocks that were designed to divert and slow water as it flows from Upper Buck Gully toward Little Corona Beach. The goal was to protect the hills on Evening Canyon and Hazel Drive from collapse.
Crews built a temporary road down to the creek bed before spending months adding the cages and rocks. They also removed invasive plants and wildlife, and plans include capturing non-native cowbirds and moving them to another area.
The hydroseed spray is part of plans to revegetate the canyon slopes with native plants.
