Tree Planting and Tree Maintenance Volunteers Needed
In keeping with the Feast of St. Francis, and our call to be good earth stewards, consider being a habitat hero and planting trees with Streamlink Education.  You will see the efficiency and effectiveness of the process of planting a riparian buffer along streams in Thurmont or Frederick your volunteer spirit is needed!  Planting native trees, especially around streams, has many benefits for maintenance of biodiversity, and we are lucky in Frederick County to have many property owners and farmers opening up their land for this work.  Once the trees are planted, volunteers are needed for tree maintenance.  The link here is for signing up for either a one-day volunteer planting experience or to become a regular tree maintenance volunteer.
