Volunteers needed to help plant 200 trees!
Orange County Soil and Water is coordinating a tree planting on Saturday, October 22nd from 9am to 1pm in partnership with NYS DEC Trees for Tribs program. We'll be planting 200 trees along the Monhagen Brook on County Road 78 in Middletown. We planted 250 trees at this site last year on the other side of the Brook, so now we're making the opposite bank look just as nice.
But it's not really about looking nice... Riparian, or streamside, plantings provide many important environmental benefits, including filtering polluted runoff, preventing erosion and sediment pollution, and providing nutrients to stream ecosystems.
The holes for the trees will be pre-dug - no back-breaking digging needed. Volunteers will be helping to plant the trees, put down weed mats, and install tree collars. We will bring the necessary supplies, but please dress for the weather and bring a pair of gloves if preferred. Snacks and lunch will be provided.
If you plan to come, please call our office at (845) 343-1873 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can be sure to have enough food for everyone. This will be our last tree planting for awhile, so we hope to see you there!
