Volunteers have big day on Stony Clove in New York

The Catskill Mountains Chapter of Trout Unlimited and Ulster County Soil and Water Conservation District recently joined forces to plant trees, shrubs and willows along the Stony Clove, a major Esopus Creek tributary.

Stony Clove was traditionally was a source of natural turbidity until s

ome recent, major stream restoration projects.

Thirty folks of all ages turned out to help in this project and in less than two hours planted more than 700 trees. Many hands make light work!
