      Additional Planting in the Historic Piper Orchard
      The park is seeking volunteers to assist with planting 176 apple trees in historic Piper Orchard on Saturday, December 8th. Each tree will be between ��-7/8� caliper and approximately five feet tall. Varieties of apples to be planted include: Spigold, Gibson Yellow Delicious, Double Red Delicious, William�s Pride, Freedom, Liberty, Jonathan, and Yellow Transparent. The holes for each tree will be pre-dug; the duty of volunteers will be to properly plant the tree in the hole. Adults will be asked to work with any children under the age of 12.
      Volunteers will meet at the Visitors Center at 9:00 AM on December 8th, and the project will run no later than 3:00 PM. Please bring warm clothes and work gloves. Tools needed for planting the trees will be provided by park staff.
