Social Funding opportunity to support local project

The Northampton County Conservation District, in partnership with the Penn State Master Watershed Stewards, and Wildland's Conservancy, have started phase II of a stream restoration project on a privately owned piece of property on Biery's Bridge Rd.  The owner has property on both sides of the stream, which makes it an ideal location for projects.  Last fall, the homeowner financed the placement of 1 Ton of rocks to be placed in- stream, and now the hope is to stabilize the banks with riparian (stream bank) plantings to help reduce erosion.  The funding goal is $2500, and will be used towards the purchase of plants, tree and shrubs.  The partner groups, and the homeowner, are hoping to use this as an example for other landowners what is possible through stream restoration.  Any amount helps.  The Go Fund Me is being administered by the Monocacy Creek Watershed Association and 100% of the money raised will be used for the purchase of plants/ supplies .  You can donate directly below or CLICK HERE
