Hello Dr. Principato, Dr. Platt, and Ms. Rynkiewicz,
My name is David Tana, and I’m contacting you today regarding upcoming volunteer opportunities with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation that will be taking place in your area during the months of April and May. Planting native trees and shrubs along the banks of our local waterways is one of the most effective ways to keep polluted runoff out of the Bay. It helps creates habitat for wildlife, prevents erosion, captures sediment, and filters pollutants like phosphorus and nitrogen. There are three Saturday events of this nature taking place on April 11th, April 25th (our large Earth Day planting), and May 9th, and we cannot pull them off without the help of volunteers!
We hope you and your Gettysburg College Environmental Studies Department students will consider joining us at some of these events, which can all be found on our event calendar at MDRestoration.
I hope to see you in the field this season!
