Help repair a river

You’re invited to join the Natural Resources Research Institute in repairing flood-damaged riparian zones along Amity Creek.

What’s a riparian zone, you ask? It’s the ecosystem along the bank of a river or other water network.

Tree planting sessions are planned for 9 a.m.-noon on Monday and Thursday. Volunteers age 10 and older can meet at the first bridge of Seven Bridges Road on the east side of the Lester River on Monday. On Thursday, tree planters should meet at the top part of Seven Bridges Road on the far end of Skyline Parkway and the easternmost point of Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve.
