Community members from Tabler Station Manor HOA are planting a mix of 16 trees in their neighborhood outside of Inwood. This is a perfect introduction to the Cacapon Institute and the important work that they do for the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and the entire Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Although the location of this tree planting may not seem like an inspirational location, MOSS folks know the importance of trees in all locations and the benefits that we reap by their presence in and around our lives. By participating in this first activity with Cacapon Institute, we will have the ability to assist in location selections for future MOSS tree plantings. This is the first official service event as MOSS and is extremely exciting. Future opportunities will include disaster relief, trail maintenance and trash cleanup projects.
Following the tree planting, we will head towards Charles Town, WV for a hike at Craftworks on the Coolspring property. This will be a relatively easy hike that will give the MOSS group an introduction to what Craftworks is all about and potentially give us opportunities to work together in the future.
Craftworks at Coolspring is a community supported nonprofit beautifully sited on 12 acres of environmentally sensitive land. Meandering Bullskin Run traverses our landscape which includes Cool Spring Marsh, a vital marl marsh containing 18 rare and very rare West Virginia plants.
