June 20, 2019by ncdea

VERMONT, Windham County NRCD – The Saxtons River Watershed Collaborative organized a riparian buffer tree planting on June 6 along the Saxtons River with its partners, the Windham County Natural Resource Conservation District, the town of Grafton, Grafton Elementary School, and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.

With shovels in hand, 53 community volunteers, Grafton town representatives, and students and staff from Grafton Elementary School planted native trees and shrubs on a town-owned property.

According to a news release, this planting represents a culmination of many years of hard work to restore this property, damaged by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, to productive floodplain habitat.
