The Alliance Pennsylvania office has had a busy year in successfully launching the TreeVitalize Streams program. Nearly 1500 trees have been planted in these Susquehanna River watersheds: Little Conestoga, Little Swatara, Letort, Mud Run, Pequea; and the West Branch of the Susquehanna.

To date nearly 500 volunteers have either participated in buffer training workshops; involved in site preparation and planting; and/or site maintenance training.

Would your local community or watershed group like to part of this success? Partnership dollars are still available for the spring of 2012 to assist up to two additional Pennsylvania communities/watershed groups to train and install a forested buffer on public land or private land with public access.
