JOHN PENNINGTON OF THE Washington County Cooperative Extension Service and who is a member of our Land Use Planning and Green Infrastructuare Committee, HAS ASKED FOR VOLUNTEER HELP ON CLEAR CREEK:
Here's what John says:
"....... there are quite a few landowners with large
streamfront property acreage who are voluntarily implementing some
very large riparian buffers during the weeks of
March 15 -19 and 22-26.
I was wondering if any of you and some of your membership base would
be interested in helping me plant the trees along with these
landownners in either an "all-star approach" (a few people from a
few organizations per site - per day) or in an individual
organizational approach (one organization per site- per day).
I figure this is a great way for your organizations to not only
achieve a tiny smidge of your missions, make meaningful landowner
contacts, and increase membership, but to also help me out during a
time when I need some help from you or your organization."
Please contact John at: 479-444-1770 or Jhpennington@uaex.edu
