Wild Thyme Farm Riparian Habitat





Wetlands and Riparian Habitat
A salmon-bearing creek winds through the bottomlands. Reforesting riparian buffer zones and creating ponds and wetlands are ongoing projects to enhance the aquatic community.
East Bank: The Eastern Wetlands
An ongoing expression of landscape art, creating a variety of wetland environments. The farm's eastern watershed drains through the ravine in front of the farmhouse, passing under the driveway through a culvert before it enters the creek.
West Bank: Kundalini Stream and the Pasture Ponds
Turning a water problem into a beautiful landscape feature that benefits wildlife and keeps our waters clear. A small perennial stream drains the farm's western watershed, crossing 500 feet of flat pastureland before it enters a much larger creek.

The plan objective is to establish a riparian forest buffer along Garrard Creek. Wild Thyme Farm is located on Garrard Creek, a tributary of the Chehalis River in Grays Harbor County, Washington.
