Native Plantings

Tree Plantings

Each fall, the Conservancy performs several native tree planting projects to improve water and habitat quality.Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who came out last year to plant 440 more native trees in our watershed.

Rain Garden Plantings

In the spring and summer, the Conservancy also performs native rain garden plantings to help manage stormwater by reducing the amount of runoff and pollutants entering our streams.

Upcoming Plantings Fall 2016:

  • Briarwyck Park, Harleysville- on September 16th, with the help of volunteers from SEI we will be installing an additional 150 trees at this site.
  • S. Park Ave, Eagleville- A local boy scout troop will be helping to plant 50 trees along a small tributary on Septmber 17th.
  • Knight Rd., Green Lane- we will be holding a general volunteer planting day on September 30 and October 1st from 10am-3pm. 

 

All TreeVitalize projects were made possible by the TreeVitalize Watersheds program, and the Plant One Million campaign, managed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, with funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Growing Greener program, as well as Aqua PA for projects located within its sourcewater protection zones.
