Planting Day to Restore Streams at Andorra Forest Oct 28

 
Published: Oct 24, 2017

Volunteers needed Saturday, October 28, 10 am - 2 pm.  A family-friendly BBQ lunch is provided!

Bring your friends and family to help plant native plants along the newly-restored streambanks in Andorra Forest, located in Stoddard, NH.

Thanks to a team of conservation partners, fish passage has recently been restored between Andorra Pond and Robinson Brook in Stoddard, NH. This project reconnects five miles of stream habitat for wild brook trout, blacknose dace, and many other species of aquatic wildlife. The last step in completing the restoration is to revegetate the shoreline along the newly constructed stream channel.

At the workday on Oct. 28 (10-2pm), volunteers will plant native plants - many of them edible – along the new channel, learning about wild edibles and stream restoration along the way. Youth ages 10 and up are welcome if accompanied by an adult.  A family-friendly BBQ lunch will also be provided. Pre-register using the sign up button below.

Volunteers should bring work gloves, water, garden tools for digging (round shovels and gardening forks), and sturdy, waterproof footwear for standing in or near the brook while planting.

This event is co-sponsored by Trout Unlimited, Andorra Forest, the Harris Center for Conservation Education, New Hampshire Fish and Game, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Financial support for this restoration project is provided in part by the Faulkner Family, NRCS, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and Trout Unlimited.
