Douglas Rischbieter, 1985
Just comlpeted a career-crowning project: restoration of a degraded wetland site in the middle of the Mount San Jacinto State Wilderness.
Coordinating State Park, CCC, Army National Guard, and several vendors’ resources, we overcame controversy and successfully implemented a project to repair a rare and fragile montane meadow. To do so required legislation to allow use of heavy equipment for a restoration project in State Wilderness, and we did so with an absolute minimum of public or environmental impact.
