Elks Run Watershed Group is partnering with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the West Virginia Department of Forestry, and West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection to plant trees along Elk Branch.
The trees will enhance the wildlife habitat along Elk Branch and help to filter pollutants and make the streambank more stable. By helping us plant trees and doing your part, you will help to ensure more clean water for future generations, and make better homes and food for animals.
