Foundation seeks volunteers to plant trees and shrubs

September 29, 2006

Volunteers are needed to help the Chesapeake Bay Foundation plant 1,200 trees and shrubs to help restore 7,000 feet of stream bank from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, on a large dairy farm in Walkersville, Md. The project aims to improve water quality in Glade Creek.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation also needs volunteers to help plant trees and shrubs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, along a stream on a farm in Waynesboro, Pa., just over the Maryland line. The plants will reduce erosion and shade the stream to maintain cold water temperatures for native trout. Partners in this project include the Antietam Watershed Association, Franklin County Conservation District, Antietam Fly Anglers, Mid-Atlantic Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers, Waynesboro Lions Club and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

Equipment, refreshments and tools will be provided for both projects. For information, directions and to register, call Marcy Damon, 443-482-2156; or e-mail mdamon@cbf.org.
