Lehigh Valley-Based Wildlands Conservancy Seeking Stream Team Volunteers To Help Maintain Riparian Buffers

Wildlands Conservancy is seeking volunteers for our Stream Team on Fridays from June through September as they maintain vegetative areas along streams (riparian buffers) and help ensure the survival of young, native trees in the forest buffer. 

These vital areas improve water quality in local communities, reduce erosion and flooding concerns, and provide habitat for wildlife.

Volunteers will maintain tubes placed over the trees to protect them from deer and remove invasive vegetation.

Volunteers must be 16 years or older OR be accompanied by a parent/guardian if under 16; be able to work outside for the duration of the shift, on uneven ground; wear safe footwear and clothing that can get dirty.

To sign up for your desired shift(s), contact Nic Ziegler, Events and Volunteer Coordinator, at nziegler@wildlandspa.org with the subject line: Stream Team Volunteer.
