Middle Run Fall 2013 Tree Planting

Thank you to all of the volunteers who chose to spend their time with Clear into the Future® and the Delaware Nature Society at Middle Run!

Clear into the Future Tree Planting GroupOver the weekend, more than 200 volunteers helped to plant 400 native tree species including: Swamp White Oak, White Oak, Sycamore, American Elm, Black Willow, and Black Gum. The trees are part of an ongoing reforestation project designed to help protect the Middle Run Watershed, provide habitat and food for wildlife, and to help enhance the health of the local ecosystem.

Since 1992, more than 7,000 volunteers have helped to plant over 50,000 trees and shrubs on 70 acres of old farm fields at the 860-acre Middle Run Natural Area. The Delaware Nature Society manages the land and biodiversity at the park, and leverages the efforts of volunteers to help accomplish the major projects that improve the quality of the landscape for wildlife and humans alike.

Thank you again for all of those that participated in this fun event! We hope to see you at the 2014 Spring Tree Planting event!
