Mill Creek Tree Planting

Mill Creek Tree Planting

Friday featured a tree planting along Mill Creek on a farm outside Intercourse, Pennsylvania.

The trees will shade the stream, cooling the water to make it better for fish who thrive in cool water temperatures.

Trees soak up nutrients from any runoff. Trees will stabilize the stream banks to prevent sediment from entering the stream.

Improving local stream water quality makes a powerful impact in Lancaster County, and downstream to the Chesapeake Bay.
