The goal of this project is to plant along critical coldwater streams in the Catskill Mountain Region. The planting will help stabilize the streambank along the creek to reduce erosion 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.
