Tree Planting 2014!

Yesterday, the Chéticamp River Salmon Association was pleased to plant 300 tree seedlings in different locations along the Aucoin Brook. The seedlings were a mixture of Yellow Birch and White Spruce, and they will create protection and increase species populations in the coming years. Trees are great to have along river/stream sides because they create shade, reduce erosion, enhance water quality, and create habitats- among other things! The old areas of thin vegetation will hopefully soon turn into riparian buffers.
