Make a Difference. Get Dirty for Improved Water Quality!
Plant some trees with us on Saturday, October 16.
Seneca Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited is sponsoring a tree and shrub planting event on Beaver Creek, a headwater stream of the Chesapeake BayEarth day may be in April, but you have a chance in October to make a difference for the environment by helping plant trees and shrubs along Beaver Creek in Washington County (near Hagerstown, Md). The planting will establish a stream buffer and protect stream banks in a restored section of Beaver Creek.
|WHEN||October 16, 2010, at 9:00 a.m. until the job is done or you have to leave. It should not take much more than the morning if we have a lot of willing volunteers. (If you can come earlier to help distribute plants that would be helpful.)|
|WHERE||Beaver Creek Restoration site. Beaver Creek Fly Fishing only area. Gather in the fly fishing parking area off Beaver Creek Road (see directions below)|
|WHAT TO BRING||Gloves, shovels, waders or boots if you have them, and a good attitude to pitch in and do what needs to be done to replant the restoration area from this summer’s work.|
|WHAT IS PROVIDED||We will have coffee, water, lunch, and all the plants.|
|WHAT TO DO||Hold the date and let us know you are coming so we know how many lunches we will need.Contact: Noel Gollehon at email@example.com or call 301-928-0151|

Are you tired of this long, hot summer? Want to get out going fishing? Where were you planning on going? Want to go someplace different that is not too far?SVTU has just the program for you! Come to our SVTU Chapter meeting September 22 and hear Tom Starrs talk about “Maryland Wild Trout Streams - The Ones We Don’t Talk About.” Tom, a long time member of the Maryland Chapter, has fished about “everywhere” in Maryland. He is willing to share some of his favorite locations to fish for wild trout — places that will be new to many of us. It sounds like an exciting program and a chance to lean about some new water, just in time for the cooler and hopefully wetter fall weather!SVTU will meet on Wednesday, September 22 at 7:30 in the Montgomery County Up-County Center in Germantown. The center is located at 12900 Middlebrook Road, Germantown, MD 20874.In addition to Tom’s presentation, we will have a short program by Benton McCarthey, the student that SVTU sponsored at the Tri-State Youth Camp. If you have teens in the family that might be thinking about this camp, this would be a great opportunity to get their questions answered.See you at the meeting!
