NEW NATURE INFORMATION SIGN FOR COOPER CREEK PARK
Roeland Parkers will add some new words to their vocabulary and learn some fascinating information about nature when they read a new interpretive sign which will be installed soon in Cooper Creek Park. For example, “What’s a Riparian Woodland Ecosystem?” or “Which plant species support the life cycle of a Monarch Butterfly?” Did you know that the gently flowing creek in Cooper Creek Park carries water that will eventually flow into the Mississippi River and finally into the Gulf of Mexico? That information and much more will be found on the interpretive sign in Cooper Creek Park.
A QR Code on the sign will link to the City’s website where further information and resources can be found that pertain to a healthy Riparian Ecosystem, the restoration work done in the park during the last 3 years, and how homeowners can benefit nature in their own yards.
The Cooper Creek Park Restoration Project is in its third and final Phase. This City project was initiated by Councilmember Trisha Brauer who is working with the Parks Committee and a group of residents who live neighboring the park. Cooper Creek Park is located at 5730 Roeland Drive.
