Forest Plantation Naturalization

Description:

Friday, May 24, 2019
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Meet at Lamb's Inn

Join us and help rare naturalize the plantations! The Thompson Tract plantation was planted in the 1980s, mostly with Black Walnut and White Pine. Plantations are rows of even-aged habitats which can compromise habitat biodiversity and are more susceptible to disease. As part of a Managed Forest Plan, the plantations are being restored to a naturalized forest habitat which includes a mix of native tree species and understory plants.

Thinning the plantation has opened up gaps in the canopy to facilitate understory growth. As a follow-up to the thinning, volunteer days will focus on increasing biodiversity by transplanting native trees and shrubs from the adjacent Indian Woods where there is a surplus of healthy saplings. This is a great opportunity for those looking to gain experience in ecological restoration and tree planting.

Cost: This event is FREE

Each volunteer day will have a morning (9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m) and afternoon (1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.) session. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for one or both sessions.
