Posted on: April 1st, 2019 by Leslie_Zucker

Trout Unlim­it­ed is look­ing for vol­un­teers to help plant trees for Earth Day.

The plant­i­ng will help to restore a dam­aged sec­tion of Wood­land Val­ley Creek, where a large stream restora­tion project was com­plet­ed by the Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram in 2018. The Catskill Moun­tains Chap­ter of Trout Unlim­it­ed (CMTU) is orga­niz­ing the tree plant­i­ng project along Wood­land Val­ley Road on Sat­ur­day, April 27, the Sat­ur­day after Earth Day.

When: Sat­ur­day, April 27, 2019

Time: 10:00AM – 2:00PM

Where: Meet at the junc­tion of Wilmont Way and Wood­land Val­ley Road in Phoeni­cia, NY, just past Wood­land Val­ley Camp­ground.

Con­tact #: 845–802-3861 (Andrew Hig­gins)

Please Reg­is­ter Online (free): https://cmtu-treeplant2019.eventbrite.com

We will be plant­i­ng native trees and shrubs along Wood­land Val­ley Creek, an impor­tant spawn­ing stream for brook, brown, and rain­bow trout. The plant­i­ng will help sta­bi­lize the stream­bank along the creek to reduce ero­sion, con­trol flood­ing, 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 Trout Unlim­it­ed 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. At the end of the plant­i­ng, CMTU will pro­vide piz­za and drinks for all vol­un­teers!
