A Great Start!


The kick off of the NYS DEC Trees for Tribs project along the Oatka fishery got off to a splendid start thanks to the wonderful hard work of 36+ volunteers and the great planning of Pete Lent of the OCWC, Steve Leupold, Melissa Marszalek of Genesee Country Village & Museum and DEC Foresters Gary Koplun and Mark Gooding.

We had beautiful weather for the event, and the volunteers got the 271 trees and shrubs planted, protected and watered in a matter of a few hours!

Pete was back to water the plantings yesterday, and things look pretty good! If you would like to help with the watering and monitoring of the plantings, contact Pete or Melissa. It’s a great excuse to hang out in a really pretty area of the Creek!

Also, stay tuned for more pictures, and more information on future phases of the project!
