We thank all of our dedicated volunteers who have come out week after week, rain or shine, to make a huge impact on the health of our local waterways. We will resume planting this fall when weather conditions are appropriate for planting. Join us on Mondays or Wednesdays in October as we finish the last leg of our marathon.
