Luray participated in three Virginia Department of Forestry initiatives this spring to help enhance the riparian buffer along Hawksbill Creek.

The Virginia Trees for Clean Water Grant was used to install trees along Hawksbill greenway.

The Emerald Ash Borer Removal and Replacement Cost-Share Program allowed for the removal and replacement of trees in the area.

The Mountains to Bay Program focused on erosion control and the streamside buffer.

Hawksbill Creek’s riparian buffer is crucial for filtering pollutants, reducing solar radiation, and erosion.
