Root-Pruning at Audubon

The Tree Replacement Project started tackling the large spaces at Audubon to find sapling trees for fall and spring transplants. Audubon has lots of spare trees and they need thinning in various areas of the property.

The bonus is being out on that wild and quiet property, so close to the city and yet, it feels like you have entered another world.

If you want to try your hand at root-pruning at Audubon, or help with tagging and inventory, we will work again on Tuesday, August 29, 8 to 10 am. Thanks, Martha, for checking weather reports so we are avoiding this very hot week.

We will meet at the building before 8. We want to finish before red melting time hits by 11. Please make sure you register so we know to wait for you if trains block the road or traffic gets snarled.

Don't forget to bring:
water, gloves, hat, a sharp spade, pruners, bug spray, sunscreen, and your smile. ??

There is a lot of poison ivy in some places, so you might want long pants and long socks to tuck them in. Even with my long-cuff gloves, I like the protection of long sleeves. ??
Record your time as Habitat Restoration, sponsor CAMN.
