CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!
We need 20-hardy volunteers! This tree planting is on a difficult, sloped stream bank, where we will be planting six-foot trees with large, heavy root bulbs.
Use our volunteer form to let us know you plan to be there Nov 8, so we have plenty of supplies on hand. Wear digging clothes, work shoes or boots, and dress for current weather conditions. Contact us with questions, or if you have a group that wants to help. Supplies and lunch are provided.
Volunteers for this event will be making a positive, long-lasting change for Richland Creek habitats and its wildlife. Healthy riparian buffers are the single most important component for maintaining a healthy and thriving stream. Trees stabilize the bank and prevent erosion; absorb stormwater and filter-out pollution, control flooding, help to maintain healthy levels of oxygen for fish and aquatic life, and provide food and habitat for other wildlife.
