Over the next few months, MountainTrue Riverkeepers are teaming up with volunteers to plant “live stakes” along rivers in our region. We’re calling for potential volunteers like you to join us for a live staking day to help make this project a success.
A live stake is a cutting from a tree species like silky dogwood, black willow, or elderberry that can be planted along riverbanks to help reduce sediment erosion. We have our live staking days from January to March because live stakes can only be planted while the plants are still dormant.
Live staking helps reduce the amount of sediment that flows into our rivers by planting live stakes along eroding riverbanks. Come hop in a boat and help us reduce erosion along our local rivers!
