When we plant native trees and shrubs in riparian areas, it not only improves the habitat for wildlife but also helps prevent erosion and keeps the waterway cleaner. An example is harvesting live stakes from existing, native trees to replant on stream banks.
Do you need to implement a project such as native tree planting, live stake installation, or pollinator habitat creation? Ohio River Foundation works with private and public landowners to implement and manage their projects, as well as provide assistance in obtaining project funding. Learn more here.
