Brownrigg-Heir Preserve Native Tree Reforestation – Postponed

May 7 @ 9:00 am - May 9 @ 3:00 pm

NOTICE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the concern for the health of volunteers and staff, we have postponed this project until further notice.

Our priority is to keep everyone safe. Please stay tuned for further information.

###############################

Overview:

Just a few weeks after Earth Day, the Ice Age Trail Alliance and volunteers will be hand planting 5,500 native trees on the Alliance owned Brownrigg-Heier Preserve. These trees will replace 8-acres of recently harvested Pine plantation, converting the area to a more natural and sustainable forest, with species estimated to have increased adaptive capacity to changing climate.

No previous experience is necessary. There will be roles for all ages and abilities.
