March 01, 2001|By Jamie Manfuso | Jamie Manfuso,SUN STAFF

The Friends of Carroll County Streams expects to receive a donation of 1,000 trees and shrubs for its first restoration project, tree planting along a tributary of the south branch of the Patapsco River on April 7.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has pledged 800 trees and shrubs - worth $6,000 - for the stream-bank reforestation project on a 300-acre state-owned tract off Hoods Mill Road near Sykesville. The Department of Natural Resources will contribute 200 trees, the group said.

The group will meet at 7 p.m. today at Bear Branch Nature Center. Rob Northrop of DNR will discuss stream-bank restoration.
