On Saturday, June 19th, community volunteers worked to help restore vegetation in the Poor Brook Watershed in East Springfield. New understory native trees were planted, along with ground covers and pollinator attracting perennials that will also help control erosion. The planting day is part of the ‘Outdoor Adventure’ series of events taking place in the Poor Brook Watershed this summer.
Additional activities include another work day on August 14, and guided tours on July14th and August 4th. For for information on how you can participate in these events, please visit www.regreenspringfield.org/poorbrook
