We will be meeting at 8588 Simcoe Road 5 at the Barrientos property for 9am on Saturday the 14th. It’s a few minutes west of Everett along Simcoe Road 5 on the north side of the road just before (east) of Concession 3. Volunteers can use the driveway from Simcoe Road 5 and park near the building where we’ll congregate and set out to the river.
We’re aiming to plant around 350 native trees using a Pine River specific methodology to maximize the benefits for salmonids. We can have an interpretation session and discussion regarding this methodology to share how we believe strategic tree planting of riparian native species can best enhance habitat.
Bring sturdy footwear or rubber boots, suitable clothing for the weather to plant for a few hours and gloves. We will also have gloves to share with volunteers. We will have a porta-potty on site which is a nice feature – the property is fairly open until our trees grow up!
