Stewards Of The Water Start On Land, Susquehanna River Basin Commission Volunteers Plant Trees At Horn Farm Center In York County

Staff from the
Susquehanna River Basin Commission volunteered their time and a whole lot of muscle to further their mission of managing and maintaining the basin in a very hands-on way earlier this month. 

They headed down to the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education in York County to plant trees, clear brush and remove invasives.

The work was done to enhance the farm’s four-acre riparian buffer project, ultimately protecting the county’s waterways. 

Trees were provided by the Keystone 10 Million Tree Partnership, and the project is funded by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, PA Infrastructure Investment Authority, The GIANT Company & Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Healing the Planet Grant Program.

Unfortunately last fall, the Horn Farm Center’s historic farm house was destroyed by a lightning strike. 

Visit the Horn Farm Center website if you’re interested in helping with the recovery!
