PPCTU will be conducting willow harvesting and planting at the Dream Stream (Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area).
Dates for 2002:
May 7 & 8, 2022
May 13, 14 & 15 2022
We have planted many willows in the past on the Dream Stream to help prevent erosion, provide shade, block the wind and provide insect habitat. Last year CPW did some stream restoration on areas that were impacted by floods from large thunderstorms in the area. This year we will be treating those areas with willows to help stabilize this work. PPCTU will be providing lunch for these volunteer days. To sign up or get more information please send an email to email@example.com . Please include the days you intend to participate and a contact phone number. This will allow us to get a head count for lunch and be able to notify everyone if there are any changes with the event.
Here are photos of past willow planting events.
