Riparian Buffer Planting Project - Sat., Oct. 20, 2018, 9:00am
In partnership with Wildlands Conservancy and Scout Troop 131
LLTU will be partnering with Wildlands Conservancy to complete a riparian buffer planting project on the Little Lehigh on Saturday, October 20, at 9:00 AM. Stay tuned for the meet-up location.
The project will be on open space land owned by Lower Macungie Township and bordering the Little Lehigh. Planting native trees and shrubs on floodplains helps to anchor the soils to guard agains erosion, promotes ecological diversity of both flora and fauna, and eventually provides shade to keep the stream cool in the summer months. We really like that the plantings will promote insect like along the stream corridor to give the trout a steady food supply.
Our friends at Scout Troop 131 in Wescosville will be working with us on this project as they have done on so many of our conservation projects.
