Tree planting a huge success

On Saturday, October 1st,  a group of about 15+ gathered to plant native trees and bushes along the Monocacy Creek near Bridal Path Rd.  The group consisted of community partners from the Monocacy Chapter, Monocacy Creek Watershed Association, Moravian University Environmental Sciences Dept, Northapton County Conservation District, Masterwatershed Stewards, Master Gardeners and Wildlands Conservancy.  We also had amazing help and support from the landowners.  This type of project shows the importance of diverse partnerships when undertaking restoration projects, and poves that there are many in our community who value natural habitats.  This project was financed in part by grants from the Coldwater Heritage Partnership, Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, DCNR and donations from MCWA.
