RESTORATION WORK PARTY AT DROPSTONE FARMS

Join us and our partners at PCC Farmland Trust on Saturday, May 2 for a restoration work party on Dropstone Farms. Farmers Lauren and Garth have fenced off a stream corridor along Card Creek from their farm fields, and the area was replanted with over 1500 trees and shrubs with volunteer support in 2018 and 2019. A tributary to the Carbon River, this section of streambank was lacking in native vegetation to keep water temperatures cool and minimize invasive reed canary grass. With your help, we’ll work to keep the weeds and blackberry bushes at bay so the native plants can continue to thrive in their new home.

Date: May 2, 2020 Time: 9am - 12pm
Location: Dropstone Farms, Orting (full directions available upon registration with PCC Farmland Trust)
