Blackwater River – Stream Buffer Planting
Saturday, Nov. 1         9am – 1pm
Cambridge, MD

In 2006, local citizens and CBF members came together to protect hundreds of acres from development into the “Blackwater Resort Communities.” Now it’s time to plant trees on the part of the land that was purchased with Program Open Space funding. We will be planting a larger buffer section next to the Little Blackwater River with native trees and shrubs. The location will be a new public access launch for canoes and kayaks.

This project is being done in partnership with MD DNR and the Dorchester County Soil Conservation District. To sign up, send your complete contact info to Katie Willis in our Salisbury office at hotcinfo@cbf.org <mailto:hotcinfo@cbf.org>.  Or just wear work clothes, bring a snack or lunch and come on out!  We’ll be planting along the Little Blackwater River, about 3/4 mile south of the intersection of Egypt Road & Rt. 16 West outside Cambridge.
