Come help CBF plant over 1,200 trees and shrubs on a farm along a tributary to Little Pipe Creek in the Monocacy River Watershed on the border of Carroll and Frederick Counties. The landowner is in the process of fencing cattle out of the stream and planting approximately 10 acres of riparian forest buffer along the stream on his property to improve water quality and wildlife habitat while reducing downstream flooding. The farm has long term plans of converting existing corn and soybean fields into permanent pastures for rotational grazing.
The first phase of this project will be planting approximately six acres of new riparian forest buffer.
This project is part of CBF’s partnership with WGL Energy and Sterling Planet to sequester carbon through restoring forested stream buffers. Project partners include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Carroll County Soil Conservation District, and the Monocacy and Catoctin Watershed Alliance. Funding is provided through WGL Energy, Sterling Planet, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
