Helping to Save the Bay

Nathan Drager works with CBF Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership Manager Brenda Sieglitz to plant a tree on his farm in Marietta, Pennsylvania. The tree is one of 200 the partnership helped Drager plant Oct. 19 to protect a stream that runs into the Susquehanna River.

Thanks to everyone who came out to plant 200 more trees on October 19! These trees help to increase the riparian buffer zone between our cattle and the stream that flows through our property and out to the Susquehanna River. Check out this great coverage about Drager Farms’ efforts to plant ten million trees in Pennsylvania by 2025 with the help of the Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership: https://www.cbf.org/blogs/save-the-bay/2019/10/bringing-the-farm-to-life.html

Tree Planting Event on May 4

Tree Planting Event on May 4

Drager Farms got accepted into the Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership! We will be planting trees on May 4th and are looking for able-bodied volunteers to help plant about 400 trees around the property. This is hard physical labor but if we all work together, we should be done in no time! And you’ll definitely sleep well that night. [¡– BONUS –!]

The trees will serve as a riparian buffer, part of a concerted statewide effort to keep Pennsylvania waters clean. The trees will also provide some welcome shade for the cows who live here.

The tree planting event is scheduled to begin at 9am and we will work until noon.
