Rappahannock County Tree Planting Project
March 22 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
Join Friends of the Rappahannock, Piedmont Environmental Council, and partners as we plant trees in a wetland area on a farm in Rappahannock County Virginia.
The project is focused on planting trees to reduce erosion, protect water quality, and improve habitat for fish and wildlife.
We have all the materials needed including tools, gloves, plants, water, and snacks. We recommend bringing a hat or visor and a reusable water bottle.
Several conservation staff will be on the site to provide instruction on planting methods, safety talk, and to answer questions about the project and the larger restoration efforts taking place across the region.
This project requires volunteers to work on a farm and in and around a stream which has lots of gravel, cobble, boulders, and mud.
All participants must complete and sign a WAIVER. Any participate under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
Three incredible riverside trailheads into Shenandoah National Park are only a short drive away which makes this a perfect part of a full day escape into the mountains!
