Help Restore a Stream for Earth Day

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):

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!

Do a Good Turn for Earth on Earth Day

Posted on: April 12th, 2017 by Leslie_Zucker

Vol­un­teer for a Trout Unlim­it­ed tree plant­i­ng on the Stony Clove Creek on Earth Day, April 22. The plant­i­ng is orga­nized but the Catskill Moun­tains Trout Unlim­it­ed (CMTU) chap­ter in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the AWSMP and the Arbor Day Foun­da­tion. CMTU and vol­un­teers will be plant­i­ng native trees and shrubs along Stony Clove Creek at the Wright Road stream restora­tion site upstream from Phoeni­cia, NY. CMTU’s goal for the project is to restore veg­e­ta­tion along crit­i­cal cold­wa­ter streams in the Catskill Moun­tain region. The plant­i­ng will help shore up the hill­side along a sec­tion of the creek that AWMSP repaired in 2016. The plant­i­ng runs from 10:00 AM — 2:00 PM.
