Forest Buffer Restoration
Did you know forested streamside buffers (a.k.a. "riparian buffers") have been scientifically proven to be the most effective and least costly best management practice for preventing pollution of our rivers and streams? Join us as we restore these valuable resources as part of our Farm Stewardship program. No experience is necessary and all supplies are provided. Families, children accompanied by an adult, and groups are all welcome.
Chester River Watershed
Help CBF restore wetland habitat on a Kent County farm and wildlife preserve. Volunteers will be planting small wetland shrubs and grasses at the Harry C. Green Wildlife Preserve. This project will help reduce soil erosion, reduce downstream flooding, and sequester carbon to help with climate change.
Patuxent River Watershed
Come help CBF plant trees and shrubs along a tributary to the Patuxent River. These plantings are critical to our clean water efforts, capturing and filtering out pollution before it enters our streams and tributaries, and helping alleviate flooding through stabilizing the soil.
We also love oysters, another one of our watershed's best filters. But you might not expect to find them in the same place—until now! After the planting, we'll take a tour of an onsite oyster aquaculture operation.
