March 21, 2019 | Friends of the Blue Ridge Mountains
Friends of the Blue Ridge Mountains (FBRM), the only conservation organization in the region with the Blue Ridge Mountains as its focus, sponsored a tree planting event on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at Sleeter Lake Park, Round Hill, VA.
Over thirty scouts, their parents, and many volunteers of all ages gathered at Sleeter Lake Park to plant 22 indigenous trees, create a pollinator garden, and remove brush from the Park grounds. James Remuzzi of Sustainable Solutions, LLC., and who is also on the Board of FBRM, created the plan, facilitated the digging of planting holes, taught the volunteers how to plant the trees, and generally supervised operations.
Through the generous donation of trees and planting materials by Meadows Farms Nurseries and the efforts of the volunteers and donors of FBRM, park visitors will be able to rest under the shade of these trees while listening to the sounds of the birds, animals, and insects that make Sleeter Lake Park their home for many years to come.
FBRM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. For more information visit www.friendsofblueridge.org
