SCHUYLER LAKE – Approximately 440 trees and shrubs were planted by 10 volunteers along the edge of Herkimer Creek as it runs past Kathy & Tim Peters’ Schuyler Lake farmstead this morning.

“We need to build up over 10,000 acres of riparian forest buffer across New York to help solve the problem of pollution in the Chesapeake Bay,” said Lydia Brinkley, Riparian Buffer Forest Coordinator for the Upper Susquehanna Coalition.  “Having trees and plants next to streams is one of the most effective practices for reducing runoff and creating habitats.”
