Riparian Buffer Planting - Patuxent River Watershed

Saturday, November 9, 2019
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
St. Mary's County, Maryland


Fall is here, which means it's time to plant trees with CBF! Join us for one of our Farm Stewardship events.

We love trees—they provide food and shelter for wildlife, provide cleaner air and cooler temperatures, increase property values, sequester carbon, and reduce polluted runoff. These plantings are critical to our clean water efforts, capturing and filtering out pollution before it enters our streams and tributaries, and helping alleviate flooding through stabilizing the soil.

This planting event is suitable for adults, families, and community groups. Please dress for the weather as tree plantings are held rain or shine.

We also love oysters, another one of our watershed's best water quality filters. But you might not expect to find them in the same place—until now! After the tree planting, volunteers will get a tour of an onsite oyster aquaculture operation.

We will provide full details about the location and directions the week before the event.

Space is limited so register now!
