As part of the restoration work at our Yards Creek Preserve in Blairstown, we need volunteers to plant 575 trees in six areas that we are reforesting. We need help over four days: 9/30, 10/1, 10/5, and 10/6. This is a big job, but it will be a rewarding experience. Your efforts will not only help protect the tributary of the Paulinskill River on this property, but also the larger Delaware River Watershed, which provides drinking water for 13.3 million people.
Dates: Wednesday, September 30; Thursday, October 1; Monday, October 5; Tuesday, October 6
Address: 71 Stony Brook Road, Blairstown NJ 07825
Dress: In outdoor attire, hiking boots strongly encouraged (no sneakers)
Equipment: Gloves and tools will be provided
- There are no bathroom facilities on site.
