Volunteers needed to plant trees, shrubs

October 25, 2002

As part of the restoration of Antietam Creek and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Farm Stewardship program, volunteers are needed to help plant trees and shrubs along Beaver Creek, an Antietam tributary. The plantings will absorb and filter runoff and provide additional habitat.

The event will be Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Hagerstown at the corner of Md. 66 and Mt. Aetna Road. Co-sponsors include Ducks Unlimited, Antietam Creek Watershed Restoration Partners, including the Beaver Creek Watershed Association, LL Bean, the Antietam Creek Watershed Association, Antietam Fly Anglers, the Mid-Atlantic Federation of Fly Fishers, the Department of Natural Resources Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Franklin County, Pa., and Washington County soil conservation districts.

Volunteers should meet at the Park & Ride on Md. 66 just north of Interstate 70. A shuttle to the planting site will be provided, as will refreshments, supplies and tools.
