The Sea Run Brook Trout  Coalition will plant trees in Stonington Saturday, the next step in a project that was supported by Nutmeg TU.

Volunteers are needed to help plant some 100 trees will in an area of Anguilla Brook on Saturday, April 28. The Nature Conservancy and DEEP partnered with the landowners to have a dam removed on the property a few years back, revealing a beautiful streambed now in need of thermal protection.

The planting is scheduled for 11 a.m., with a rain date of Sunday, April 29, and a deluge date of Saturday, May 5.

The location is at the end of Lane Way in North Stonington which is right off of Route 1 and looks more like a driveway than a road.

Take shovels, pick axes, pitch bars and anything else that would be helpful in planting trees.
