The live stake planting at Cayuga Creek in the Town of Niagara was a great success last weekend on April 6.

We had 23 volunteers wading in water and walking through mud to get 450 live stake plantings in the ground along our restoration site. Learn more about the site here. 

Trees and shrubs are an important component of a healthy shoreline ecosystem. The root systems of woody species help prevent erosion and hold soil in place during flooding. Trees and shrubs also help regulate water temperatures by casting shade onto the water and provide critical habitat for many wildlife species and beneficial insects.⁠ 

Thanks so much to all the volunteers who took the time to help us maintain this restoration site. View more of the images below from the day. And if you’re interested in joining us during one of our volunteer events, click below to learn about various options.
