Join Audubon Mid-Atlantic in a volunteer tree planting effort along the Perkiomen Creek as we repair and enhance the tree canopy damaged after Hurricane Ida. Riparian buffers, or stream-side areas of trees and other native vegetation, are essential areas of habitat for birds and other wildlife. They also play a critical role in protecting our drinking water quality and reducing damage from foods.
Volunteers will learn to plant native trees and shrubs and help install fencing to protect the plantings from deer. Boots and long pants are recommended for working in uneven terrain. Gloves and tools will be provided. Lunch will be provided. Please register and plan to join us as you are available throughout the day.
