In partnership with the Virginia Department of Forestry, the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association, and Seven Bends State Park, Friends of Seven Bends State Park is expanding and improving a riparian buffer on the Lupton side of the park (1191 Lupton Rd.). Volunteers will plant a combination of bare root seedlings and true gallon trees and install stakes and shelters around each one.  

Meet at the lower parking lot on the Lupton side of the park at 9am. Please dress for the weather, and for navigating in heavy brush. While gloves and tools will be provided, feel free to bring your own gloves and tools if you have them.
