Pigtail Recreation Area Reforestation

dscn3126-pigtail-2015_1114-smThis site is within the Triadelphia Reservoir watershed owned by Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC).   Using a combination of Chesapeake Bay Trust grant funds and Chapter conservation project funds, this was the Chapter’s first reforestation planting. In 2000, we committed to planting 350 1-gallon size trees and 50 shrubs.  We returned to the site in 2010 for routine maintenance and more plantings.  WSSC has plans to create a native tree arboretum here and we look forward to being part of the design and planting process.
