Planting native trees and shrubs along the banks of our local waterways is one of the most effective ways to keep polluted runoff out of the Chesapeake Bay. It helps creates habitat for wildlife, prevents erosion, captures sediment, and filters pollutants like phosphorus and nitrogen. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has scheduled two Saturday events of this nature on April 11th and April 25th (our large Earth Day planting), and we cannot pull them off without the help of our volunteers!
These events can be found on our event calendar at http://www.cbf.org/events/calendar. You can register for them, and others, at http://www.cbf.org/events/other/md/restoration-events. Once registered, you will receive volunteer health form to complete and additional details (address, directions, and what to wear/bring) via e-mail. If you have, please contact David Tana at MDRestoration@cbf.org.
