  1. Willows & The Jordan river By: Jessie Duarte & Michael Spencer

  2. Intro • Last week we planted willow branches along the banks of the Jordan river. Within 3 years, These willow branches grow roots 8-10 feet( in radius) of where the branch is planted. These roots give the banks shape and control The direction of the river flow. It also prevents erosion. The willows are native species which can be eaten by local beavers. Planting willows is cheap, easy and great for Jordan river habitat.
