CMTU and vol­un­teers will be plant­ing native trees and shrubs along Bush Kill in part­ner­ship with the Arbor Day Foun­da­tion. The goal of this project is to plant along crit­i­cal cold­wa­ter streams in the Catskill Moun­tain Region. The plant­ing will help sta­bi­lize the stream­bank along the creek to reduce ero­sion and pro­vide shade to keep the water cold and clean!

We are look­ing for at least a dozen vol­un­teers to help. You are not required to be a TU member.

Jobs include: coor­di­nat­ing vol­un­teers, plant­ing trees, water­ing, reg­is­tra­tion table. Please con­sider tak­ing one day out of the year to help ful­fill the mis­sion of Trout Unlimited.

Please join us and bring a friend.
