They are not just nice to look at in your yard, but they do a lot to help protect the environment.

“Cumberland county conservation district: it really helps keep the soil in place and keep the water from getting in the bay. Because our biggest thing is cleaning up the bay and trying to keep the bay clean,” Chas Heberlig of the Cumberland County Conservation District said.

This is the 44th time they have held a seedling sale. All proceeds go to Envirothon awards and scholarships.
