PA property owners: watch your mail

CBF is mailing 30,000 post cards to streamside property owners in southern central PA to encourage them to plant forest buffers along their streams. The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) not only covers the costs to install buffers, but also pays annual rental fees once the buffer has been established.


"Planting streamside buffers is one of the most effective conservation measures we can take to reduce pollution and improve water quality in our local streams,"� said David Wise, PA CBF's Watershed Restoration Manager. "We're encouraging landowners to enroll and take advantage of the opportunity to improve their water quality and the value of their property while getting paid to do so."� (PA Farm News)
