The Perkiomen Plant-A-Thon will be hosted over a series of weekends throughout September, October and November. With the help of our Conservation Team, volunteers will work to plant riparian buffers and rain gardens throughout the watershed.

Join us in this multi-month conservation event with the goal of planting over 10,000 native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants along local waterways!
