PERRYSBURG - Black Swamp Conservancy is looking for volunteers to be part of a major tree planting project at their new Water's Edge Preserve in Sandusky County. The event will take place May 18.
The conservancy invites individuals, families, community groups, Scout troops and businesses to help plant more than 2,000 trees on their new 60-acre nature preserve. Conservancy staff will be working from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; volunteers can be scheduled for smaller time frames that best fit their availability.
Water's Edge Preserve is located on the Sandusky River, south of Fremont. It includes almost one half mile of river corridor along with a small river island. Historically farm ground, the Conservancy is doing a large-scale reforestation of the property beginning with next Saturday's tree planting.
Once vegetation is established, the preserve will be available as an educational resource for local schools and universities, in addition to Conservancy-led programming. In time, Water's Edge Preserve will be opened up to limited public access.
