Volunteer Tree Planting and Habitat Restoration

November 19, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Join staff from Friends of the Rappahannock and the Rapidan Chapter of Trout Unlimited as we plant trees and shrubs along a small headwater stream that leads to the Rapidan River in Madison County! This is the final stage of a large trout habitat restoration project.

We will meet at 210 Bluff Mountain Road Graves Mill, Virginia 22727 at 10:00am

We will be focused on installing live plant material that will help protect water quality, prevent erosion, and improve habitat for fish and wildlife.

We have all the materials needed including tools, gloves, waders/rubber boots, water, and snacks.

Several conservation staff will be on the site to provide instruction on planting methods, safety talk, and to answer questions about the project and the larger restoration efforts taking place across the region.

This project is located on an active cattle farm with multiple streams and has lots of gravel, cobble, boulders, manure, and mud. Appropriate clothing (layers) and footwear (boots) are encouraged.

All participants must complete and sign a WAIVER (Click Here). Any participate under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

This project is located five minutes from a gorgeous trail head of Shenandoah National Park and participants are encouraged to enjoy a hike along the Rapidan River after the planting project.

Please contact Bryan Hofmann with any questions.

This project is made possible thanks to generous funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), Virginia Environmental Endowment (VEE), Trout Unlimited Embrace A Stream Program, Patagonia World Trout Initiative, and the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund.

By the Numbers in 2018

Challenges facing the Rappahannock gave it a C rating in our 2018 River Report Card. We’re raising that grade. Be inspired by some of our favorite stories across the watershed.
