American Chestnut Planting
Join us to plant trees!
Time & Location
Jun 19, 2021, 8:00 AM
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 email@example.com if you can help. We will meet at the preserve Albert J. Sousa Preserve | Srlt (sebasticookrlt.org) 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.
