Trees for Trout, Get 'Em in the Ground
We've scheduled another planting day, Saturday, May 4 from 8:30 am until Noon.
We need to plant 300 bare root seedlings and 800 live stakes at the lower end of the Herr Project. Trees have been donated by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's "10 Milllion Trees Initiative" and the live stakes are courtesy of the Chesapeake Conservancy. These plantings are going to make an amazing difference to this project, but we need help getting them in the ground. Dress for the weather, wear appropriate footwear, and bring your favorite shovel or spade if you have one. "Kutzie" will be back from his trials & tribulations catching and releasing some of Montana's trout, so "Gourmet Hot Dogs" will be the reward for your labors.
If you can help, please contact Greg Wilson so we can lay in a sufficient supply of those grillers.

Fly on the Run
Lancaster County Career & Technology Center will host Fly on the Run this year once again on Lititz Run. The main event will operate out of Millport Conservancy and DTU has again been asked to supply Stream Guides & help with stocking the stream.
Stocking will take place on Tuesday, May 14. Meet at Millport at 9 am. Stream Guides will be needed on May 16 to see to insure that both the trout & stream are treated with respect by the participants. Meet at Millport @ 7a m. A free breakfast, lunch, post-event canapes and adult beverages are your reward.
