Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn recently announced “Buffer My Stream,” a program to encourage 10,000 Pennsylvania landowners with streams on their property to improve water quality and lessen erosion by planting native trees and shrubs along the water’s edge.

“Streamside buffers are a natural way for agricultural and residential landowners to create cleaner water and improve the stewardship of their land. Not all eligible landowners are aware of their value, and the purpose of this outreach is to bridge that gap,” Dunn said. “We want to make it easy for landowners to understand the benefits of streamside buffers and connect them with funding and experts available to guide them through the process.”
