Keller Creek Buffer
This wildlife and recreational corridor connects Keller and Phalen regional parks.
The Keller Creek restoration project brought significant improvements to wildlife habitat and recreation along nearly a mile of this popular creek. Aquatic emergent plants like bulrush and burreed protect banks from high water flows. Along the creek-edge, deep rooted native plants stabilize soils and filter out pollutants. A plethora of flowers provide pollen, nectar and seeds to butterflies, bees and birds. An array of attractive blooms greet park users throughout the growing season. Families take advantage of the reconstructed access areas to float, fish, picnic, and simply enjoy watching the creek.
