    WASHINGTON, N.C.     ReLeaf Washington, in partnership with Beaufort County Community College, planted six trees on the college's campus on December 8. The project compliments a newly constructed wetland developed by Sound Rivers.

    The .2 acre wetland captures the first 1.5 inches of rainfall from surrounding rooftops and parking lots on 18 acres and slowly releases it into Broad Creek over the course of three days, removing pollution in the process. The wetlands can hold 140,000 gallons of stormwater. The addition of trees (three winterberries, a bald cypress, a sweet bay magnolia, and an Atlantic white cedar) will help to further clean the water while beautifying the project and creating wildlife habitat.

    ReLeaf Washington's mission is to plant, promote, and protect trees in and around the original Washington. The project was facilitated and funded in part by Clay Carter, BCCC's director of personal enrichment and ReLeaf member.
