Taking place on Saturday.
Nearly 100 volunteers will gather Saturday to plant 1,500 trees. It's taking place at 11449 Alton Road, in Frederick, between Libertytown and New Market.
"It's to help purify water running to Lake Linganore in the creek," said Tom Zolper, Maryland Communication Coordinator, Chesapeake Bay Foundation. "The water from the creek flows to the lake. The water is used for drinking water for Frederick City," continued Zolper.
The root systems from trees act as a filter and support greenhouse gas reduction efforts. The planting will reduce 200 pounds of nitrogen pollution a year.
The planting area was formerly a cattle farm and is now in permanent agricultural easement, which means it won't be developed.
This planting also marks the 10th anniversary of CBF's work in Frederick County to help farmers and other landowners restore water qaulity in the county.
Other partners in Saturday's planting include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Catoctin/Monocacy Watershed Alliance, who provided technical support to the event.
