Riverbanks with native trees, shrubs and flowers are the most cost-effective restoration projects we can implement in the Connecticut River watershed. Restoring riverbank trees and shrubs, which were cut and removed over the years, is an important step toward improved water cleanliness, more stable riverbanks, and better fish & wildlife habitat for our rivers. CRC has secured funding to plant native trees and shrubs along the banks of the Connecticut River and its tributaries in order to filter polluted runoff and provide a buffer zone between our streams and land use.

This fall, we need volunteers to help us plant more trees at the following locations:

  • Walpole, NH
  • Guilford, VT
  • Lyndon, VT
  • Barnet, VT
  • Piermont, NH

You will need:

  • Face masks
  • Water bottle and snack/lunch
  • Appropriate clothing for the weather
    • Boots
    • Raincoat
    • Hat
    • You will get dirty, so plan to bring a spare set of clothes for after.
  • Work gloves
  • Shovel if you have one.
