March of the Thickets

Valleys act as conduits in the forest. They carry moisture and other nutrients from the higher points to the lower. The valleys have been determined as migratory routes for systems to move along from the good forest to the degraded forest. The migration has been contemplated to be in an orderly fashion like that of a march past. 
The site will be developed using the native plant species existing in the valley regions in terms of smaller systems  which are interconnected and form the larger system of the forest.
