More than 600 volunteers have planted over 6,000 native trees and shrubs along the Wallkill River and its tributaries with the Hudson River Estuary Trees for Tribs Program to improve water quality and stream health.
Want to get involved? Do you own or manage land along a stream? If you have a site that could use some plants, visit www.dec.ny.gov/lands/43668.html or contact the Hudson River Estuary Program’s Stream Buffer Coordinator, Beth Roessler at (845) 256-2253 and HudsonEstuaryTFT@dec.ny.gov . Sites that qualify will receive free native trees and shrubs, and staff will help with a planting plan. Check out some of the photos of past plantings!
