1100Volunteers needed to replant North Woods
- Jan 30, 2003PRESS RELEASE:
A Call For Volunteers to Help Replant The North Woods
(Sharpsburg, MD) Beginning this spring of 2003, Antietam National
Battlefield will begin reforesting a new 12-acre section of the North
Woods. A major part of this effort includes the planting of
approximately 150 Balled and Burlapped trees. The Division of Natural
Resources is requesting the help of volunteers to ensure that all of the
trees will be planted this spring.
The project is planned to begin the second week in April and should be
completed by Saturday, May 10. Planting will take place Tuesday through
Saturday, preferably in the morning. Each tree will be nursery size
including Red and White Oaks, Tulip Poplars and Redbuds. The holes for
each tree will be pre-dug, so the duty of the volunteer will be too
properly plant the tree in the hole. Because of the fairly large size of
the trees, adult assistance/supervision will be necessary.
If you are interested in volunteering for this project or have any
questions, please contact Michelle Clements in the Division of Natural
Resources at 301.432.6236.
