Front Royal continues Happy Creek restoration

The Town of Front Royal is hosting a Happy Creek Restoration Community Planting Day from 10 am to 2 pm.

Volunteers will meet along the Greenway between South St and Short St to help revegetate a section of Happy Creek’s riparian buffer.

A healthy riparian buffer is crucial to help filter pollutants, reduce solar radiation, and prevent erosion.

Make sure to dress for the weather and be ready to get your hands dirty while helping your community and local ecosystem.

The Town first began working on this riparian corridor in July of this year with leadership and oversight from the Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee.

Volunteers removed invasive and aggressive tree and ground cover throughout the summer to make way for the native plants that will be planted today.
