Applications for TreeVitalize Watershed Grants in five Southeastern PA counties are due September 18. The grants may be used for planting trees along stream corridors, adjacent upland areas, headwaters and naturalized stormwater basins.
TreeVitalize Watersheds depends on collaboration with six organizations that funnel, guide, and help implement watershed restoration projects in their service areas: Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, the Conservation District offices in each of the four surrounding SEPA counties, and the Stroud Water Research Center in Chester County.
These six organizations provide technical assistance to a variety of smaller organizations and local watershed groups in their areas.
The program receives funding from the Department of Environmental Protection and corporate sponsor Aqua PA, as well as substantial in-kind contributions from various partners.
Since 2005, the PA Horticultural Society has lead the TreeVitalize Program in the five-county southeastern PA region including Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.
