Over 300 volunteers planted over 6,000 native trees and plants in riparian buffers, stormwater basins and rain gardens over a series of weekends throughout September, October and November.

Riparian Forest Buffer Projects

Each fall, the Conservancy performs several native tree planting projects to improve water and habitat quality.  



Source Water Protection Projects

In the spring and summer,
the Conservancy installs native
rain gardens to help manage stormwater by reducing the amount of runoff and pollutants entering our streams.

Past Projects
