Volunteers Needed for Chapter Tree Planting
Save the date! In celebration of Earth Day and our love of rivers and aquatic critters, CMTU will be hosting a riparian tree planting event on Sunday April 30th. The event will be held at two small properties along Esopus Creek in the town of Ulster. We are working with the Kingston Land Trust (KLT), which is the owner of the properties, to plant a variety of native trees and shrubs to help revegetate the sites. Additional tasks may include spreading mulch/woodchips and repairing a deer/woodchuck fence that was installed to help protect the young plants while they take hold.
The planting will take place from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, or until we run out of plants. Parking for the event is available across the street at the Orlando Street Ball Park (https://goo.gl/maps/1RNXpxzaUEp6grYo7) and at the Town of Ulster Esopus Creek Access (https://goo.gl/maps/VjSNpiLEBJUE6ddE6).
Please bring some gloves, planting tools (shovel, pick mattock, etc.), a reusable water bottle, snacks, and your best fishing stories to share with folks while we work! CMTU will have some extra tools and gloves to share. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
