Our October 18th tree planting saw the arrival of enthusiastic volunteers from SUNY New Paltz, and from friends from NY and NJ.

trees1We planted another batch of trees, a mixed selection of red oaks, willows, birches and more, and the tree planters celebrated with a traditional semi-annual BBQ. This brings the grand total of new plantings to 600.

Later that same week a group of hard working volunteers arrived, as part of HSBC Bank’s water project, and helped with the maintenance of the several hundred trees planted in prior years. Our next planting will coincide with Riverkeeper Sweep Day in the Spring of 2015.  Hope you will be able to join us then!
