The Guadalupe River is one of the most biologically diverse rivers in the USA.
The purpose and mission of the Plum Creek Wetlands Preserve is to conserve water quality with responsible management of wetlands, to protect wildlife habitat and to promote an appreciation of the natural world through meaningful educational, recreational, and research opportunities.
GBRT is seeking volunteers for our 2020 Plum Creek Wetlands Preserve (PCWP) Reforestation project to help restore the 265-acres back to its native vegetation. Volunteers will help with planting 1000+ bare-root seedlings in certain areas on the property. The tree species chosen are native to the Blackland Prairie ecoregion for both wetlands and non-wetlands. The property includes diverse habitat types including a mile of riparian woodlands along plum creek, and emergent, forested wetlands. The 29 constructed wetlands on site are very inviting to wildlife including the White-Tailed Deer, many species of raptors, waterfowl, amphibians, reptiles and pollinators. This is a great volunteering opportunity for Master Naturalists, Master Gardeners, members of clubs and organizations, students, local community members, families, or anyone seeking educational hours towards a project. For more information, please call 830-560-3944, or email Info@GBRTX.org. Lunch will be provided to volunteers who sign up prior to the deadline date - November 9, 2020. Volunteer hours are flexible.
Special thanks to the Burdine Johnson Foundation for your continued support and for helping to fund this project.
