Albert J. Sousa Preserve, Burnham, ME


We will be planting chestnut seedlings at the Albert J. Sousa Preserve in Burnham SRLT.  Last year at Sousa, we established a partnership with The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) by planting a native chestnut (Castanea dentata) orchard.  Last year’s record drought caused high seedling mortality at the orchard, so we will supplement the site with replacement seedlings.

Please contact us at if you can help.  We will meet at the preserve Albert J. Sousa Preserve | Srlt ( at 8:00 AM on Saturday, June 19.  Bring work gloves and water.  We should be finished before noon.  Come and join in the fun by volunteering for SRLT and TACF.
