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.
