RE: [TalkAntietam] Volunteers needed to replant North Woods
At last night's SHAF meeting we voted to make the April kick off date SHAF's
semi annual park work day. Please join us if you are a mind to. Also SHAF
will be leading a tour for SHAF membership of our signal tower site on March
8th, weather permitting, and rain date of March 15th.
- Tom Shay,
You beat me to the punch. SHAF is planning to help out with this
and is putting out a call for strong backs and weak minds (yours truly
heading the list) to be there on 4/12. It should be a lot of fun. Also
SHAF is sponsoring a hike to the top of Signal Hill, as we call it, the
site we purchased last year with your money. the view is tremendous,
date is set for March 8, 10:00 in Visiror Center parking lot. Weather
permitting of course and message me for questions and attendance.
>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.
