I recently came across this event (thanks PHENND updates email!). The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is looking for volunteers to help plant many many baby trees along a stream in chester county. I think I’m going to go! The date is November 5th (yup, that’s a Saturday), morning time.
For the quick facts of the event (from the event’s webpage itself):
what: Chester County Riparian Tree-Planting Event
when: Saturday, November 5th, 9-1 am (rain date: November 6th)
why: to plant 1,530 small trees on a lovely hillside near the headwaters of the West Branch Brandywine Creek
ok, but why: These trees will protect water quality, prevent erosion, and provide habitat for fish, birds, and other wildlife for years to come.
