    Warwick —The Village of Warwick is seeking volunteers to help plant 500 native trees and shrubs along the banks of the Wawayanda this Saturday and Sunday at Veterans Memorial Park. According to a press release from Village Hall, the holes will be pre-dug prior to the event. The plantings will take place between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, then from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday. Volunteers are advised to wear long sleeves and pants and to bring work gloves. Volunteers are asked to call Village Hall at 986 -2031. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs initiative provides free native trees and shrubs to replant the streams of the Hudson Valley. These trees will help protect water quality, fish and wildlife and will also reduce erosion and flooding.
