Grants available for riparian buffers in SEPA

The Southeast PA Treevitalize Watersheds program is currently accepting applications for funding to conduct tree planting in riparian zones and the naturalization of stormwater basins. Through this program, dozens of watershed restoration projects are conducted every year, resulting in thousands of trees planted in those sensitive water protection zones. The program receives funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and corporate sponsor Aqua PA, as well as substantial in-kind contributions from various partners.

If you are interested, please hurry! The application period closes on December 30, 2011. For more information, visit the Treevitalize website.
