American Dairy Association North East partner, Genesee RiverWatch, is looking for volunteers help to plant trees! The tree planting is needed to complete the restoration of 2,000 feet of river bank along the Genesee River, in Allegany County, New York, and stabilize a highly eroded bank.


The tree planting takes place over two days, but your help is appreciated on either or both days – whatever your schedule permits!

  • Friday, April 1, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 2, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Houghton, New York (55 miles south of Rochester, New York)


  • Work gloves, hammers, and rebar for planting, and pruning shears for harvesting. Feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
  • Water and snacks
