Sourland Conservancy Begins Spring Planting with New Interns

by Community Contributor

The Sourland Conservancy has started this season’s planting, welcoming their newest interns, Sam Guman and Danielle Deering.

This spring, Sam and Danielle will plant native trees, shrubs, and flowers; install deer fences; manage invasive species; and lead volunteer groups. Since 2020, the Sourland Conservancy’s staff, volunteers, and interns have partnered with landowners in the region to plant 45,000 native trees and shrubs. These plantings will help offset the loss of over one million trees due to the invasive emerald ash borer.
