(EXMORE, VA)—The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is seeking volunteers to plant a buffer of native shrubs at a farm near Silver Beach on Wednesday, March 23. Planted buffers along waterways like this one help keep pollution out of rivers, creeks, and the Chesapeake Bay.
Volunteers should prepare to be outside and wear long pants and sturdy shoes that can get muddy. Snacks will be provided, but participants should bring drinking water and lunch. Tools and work gloves are available, or volunteers can bring their own. This event is suitable for children closely supervised by adults in a one to one ratio.
The March 23 event will be held rain or shine at 5225 Occohannock Neck Road in Exmore from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Volunteers are welcome to participate any time during the planting, and are not required to stay for the whole event. Signs will be posted from Route 13 in Exmore, parking is onsite. Please contact Tatum Ford for more information or to RSVP at 757-971-0366 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
