Tree Plantings – Vermont and Massachusetts
October 19, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
Join our tree planting team in restoring our riverbanks and wildlife habitat! This is an outdoor opportunity. Bring adequate layers of clothing for the weather, snack, water and lunch, face mask, along with work gloves and shovels, if you have them.
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.
