AmeriCorps NJ Watershed Ambassadors Plant Trees along Paulins Kill

Monday, November 20, 2017



Last week, the SCMUA-Wallkill River Watershed Management Group coordinated a restoration work day for the AmeriCorps NJ Watershed Ambassadors on property owned by the Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority. As part of the event, watershed ambassadors from throughout New Jersey travelled to Sussex County to learn about the benefits of planting trees along streams and how to plan similar water quality improvement projects in the communities that they serve. In total, the group planted and protected 500 trees and shrubs next to the Paulins Kill River in a highly visible section of the project located near Route 206.
