Volunteers Sought to Plant Native Trees, Shrubs at CBF Brock Center at Pleasure House Point

(VIRGINIA BEACH, VA)—The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is seeking volunteers to help plant native trees and shrubs on Tuesday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at CBF's Brock Environmental Center, 3663 Marlin Bay Drive in Virginia Beach.

Volunteers will plant approximately 90 shrubs and 50 live oak trees to help trap and filter polluted runoff, protect water quality in the Lynnhaven River, and provide food and shelter for birds and other wildlife. Volunteers also may help remove invasive plants. 

Participants should dress for the weather, be prepared to get dirty, and bring a hat, work gloves, sunscreen, and water. Volunteers also are welcome to bring a bag lunch to enjoy picnic-style after the planting.

To volunteer, call 757/622-1964 or email rsvp@cbf.org.
