Thank You, Industrious Tree Planters! Trees are Important to Our Watershed

Trees provide a welcome buffer for a stream. Along with brush and grasses, they increase water quality by filtering sediment, unwanted nutrients and pesticides from run-off before it enters a stream.

Trees help stabilize the stream bank and prevent erosion. They serve as habitat and wildlife corridors in primarily agricultural areas. And they provide cooling shade over the water for fish and other aquatic animals.

Eleven hard-working helpers came out Saturday, March 28, and planted 140 fast-growing cypress and sycamore trees along the banks of the Maag property on Spring Creek. We couldn't have done it without you.

It was a beautiful sunny and fresh spring day. The work was rewarding, the creek was running high, and we all enjoyed being outside on such a fine day.

The Spring Creek Coalition has now planted some 2,600 trees throughout the years in the Spring Creek watershed.
