CLEVELAND — Jaimie Johnson is wild about wetlands.
She is the watershed coordinator for the Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District, and she came up with the idea of implementing an artificial wetland. This is a pilot project.
She wanted to grow wetland plants on a mat, anchored in water, that was normally too deep for them to survive. She thought she had it all figured out.
“The geese unfortunately ate all my plants the first time,” said Jaimie.
But she tried again, and along with Breoni Turner, a watershed intern who is about to start work on a master's degree in environmental engineering, the wetlands project became a reality.
