Native stream side vegetation is important for keeping water cool and clean for fish. Native plants require little maintenance making them an easy way to make your land beautiful and protect the needs of our wildlife.
Several organizations in the area offer volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups for stream side planting and wetlands restoration projects in spring and fall. During the dry months, projects include mulching, watering, weeding, and monitoring the success of earlier planting projects. For a real workout, consider an ivy or blackberry pull!
