The Virginia Department of Forestry receives grant funds from U.S. Forest Service Region-8 for the purchase and planting of tree seedlings in impaired watersheds. The grant, called "Trees for TMDL", is distributed by the Virginia Department of Forestry to partners looking to install riparian buffers. Clarke County was the recipient of a generous gift of $2,000. These funds were used to plant over 200 seedlings in the Spout Run watershed at Boyce Elementary School, Powhatan School, and the Burwell Morgan Mill. Conservation Services, Inc. performed the planting.
