Bike the Watershed
A Self-Guided Tour of a Few of
PVCA’s Watershed Projects

Bring your bike and tour several of PVCA’s Riparian Buffers and witness what impact they are having on the wildlife, the land, and the water quality. Map and information about each site are available below in both Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format.

On this tour, you will see several sites including:

  • Manicured to Managed: See how Willow Springs Farm is creating space for native trees and meadow plants.
  • Planting for Healing: See the Elder Grove planted by herbalist Sarah DePasquale and the rows of native medicinals and berries.
  • Keep the Cows Out: See the stream bank fencing along Pine Creek’s tributaries at four farms along the route.
  • Thousands of Trees: PVCA has created a young forest at Cemetery Road. See the colorful flags denoting alders and locusts that have turned this open field into a songbird haven.
