Individuals and groups wanting to learn about live staking are encouraged to sign up for this unique volunteer opportunity organized by the Chesapeake Conservancy.
Volunteers will collect live stakes to be embedded into the banks of streams for forest restoration projects later this year. Live stakes are living shrubs and tree branches that root when inserted into the soil.
