We will be planting native trees and shrubs along Woodland Valley Creek, an important spawning stream for brook, brown, and rainbow trout. The planting will help stabilize the streambank along the creek to reduce erosion, control flooding, and provide shade to keep the water cold and clean!
This will be our largest volunteer event of the year for our chapter.
We are looking for at least a dozen volunteers to help. You are not required to be a member.
Jobs include: coordinating volunteers, planting trees, watering, registration table. Please consider taking one day out of the year to help fulfill the mission of Trout Unlimited.
Please join us and bring a friend. At the end of the planting, CMTU will provide pizza and drinks for all volunteers!
