Stream Buffer Planting Project

A new project is underway sponsored by a partnership of the Edward L Rose Land Conservancy, the Silver Lake Association, The Susquehanna County Conservation District, and the Penn State Extension Master Watershed Stewards Program.

  The project involves planting native trees and shrubs as a buffer along the shores of inlet and outlet streams.  The native trees and shrubs will provide long term improvement and protection of the water quality in Silver Lake and local streams in the Silver Lake watershed.

    The planting project needs some volunteers to work with us to help do the planting.    Here is your opportunity to pitch in and be a positive help to our SIlver Lake community.   This is a family friendly activity.

There will be multiple dates where planting will be done, starting with :

Friday September 16, 2022.        ( 10 AM to 12 noon )   and/or ( 2 PM to 4 PM ). (COMPLETED)

Saturday September 17, 2022.   ( 10 AM to 12 noon )   and/or ( 3 PM to 5 PM ). (COMPLETED)
