We are so excited to announce our volunteer tree plantings for the fall! Planting native trees and shrubs along streams, rivers, and ponds – also known as riparian buffers – is a way to help clean water and connect wildlife habitat. These tree plantings will take place in Clarke, Fauquier and Rappahannock counties in October and November.
