Ecological Restoration of Toby Creek

Date: May through 2021

Toby Creek is the main waterway through campus, and the entire length (1.5 miles) is undergoing ecological repair and restoration.  Excellent viewing opportunities can be found along the Ruth G. Shaw Greenway. The restoration work is complete at the W.T. Harris Boulevard entrance of the creek to campus (with an information board at Alumni Way), and the work is continuing downstream until it reaches Mallard Creek.  This summer will be the prefect time to see this project in both before and after conditions.  For details go to the Mecklenburg County project site.
