Over 100 volunteers planted 400 trees and shrubs alongside Montour Run in North Fayette and Findlay Townships as part of an intermunicipal collaboration between the municipalities of North Fayette, Oakdale, Findlay, Coraopolis, and Moon. Extensive support and property access was provided by Hollow Oak Land Trust and the Montour Trail Council. An exemplary display of teamwork to improve water quality and engage residents!
MORE ABOUT RIPARIAN BUFFERS
A streamside buffer is the strip of land that runs alongside streams and rivers. Buffers play a critical role in protecting water quality, reducing stormwater impacts, aiding in flood control, stabilizing stream banks, filtering pollutants and providing habitat for wildlife.
