Nonprofits rally for restoration in Hermosa

Dozens of volunteers and staff took to Hermosa Creek Trail to kill weeds, plant seeds
Elizabeth Tulok, left, Zoltan Tulok and Ziggy Tulok, 8, make seed balls Saturday during “Hermosa Resilience: A Community Event” at the Lower Hermosa Campground. The seed balls, eventually thrown around in the 416 Fire burn scar, are made up of a variety of native grass and flower seeds along with service berry seed, compost, sand and clay. The balls dry rock hard to ward off predation, and then as the monsoon rains fall, the seeds can germinate.
