"Fresh water emerges at more than 1,000 springs in Florida. This water, flowing from the aquifer below, supplies more than 90% of Floridians with drinking water."

Remember that volunteer day we told you about doing invasive management work upstream from a series of buffers on Amish and Mennonite farms?

Here we are with our host Travis Martin and #WaterWeek founder Fritz Schroeder of @lancasterconservancy

We're celebrating #nationaltrailsday and #LancasterWaterWeek by volunteering!

Sunrise over a recently installed riparian buffer along a tributary to Little Conestoga. This buffer is a small one but important. It's the connecting buffer between five adjacent Amish and Mennonite farms, all of which have installed buffers on their land!

You can join Lamonte Garber from our restoration team this Saturday, June 5 for invasive management at the headwaters of this stream as part of Lancaster Water Week! Link to RSVP in bio.

How are we monitoring the changes by the addition of these buffers? Well that's where the science comes in! Our entomology team is sampling this stream to monitor changes in stream health!
