Spring Tree Plantings

This May we will be hosting two tree planting days, May 5th and 12th, with our partners at Adirondack Riverwalking. Both plantings with take place at one of the Ausable River Association's past restoration sites in Upper Jay, NY. We will be working to revegetate the streambank along this section of the East Branch Ausable River. Not only is this a great opportunity to help protect the river, but it is also a great way to learn about tree planting. Our Biodiversity Research Manager, Carrianne, and Research Associate, Liz, will be providing guidance on proper tree planting techniques for bareroot, tube stock, and live stake trees. Both events will run from 9am to 1pm. Shovels and gloves with be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.

Our tree planting for Friday, May 12th is currently full and we are not seeking any additional volunteers. Thank you for your support.  

These plantings are part of an ongoing streamside habitat restoration program with our partners at Adirondack Riverwalking. This program aims to bring together students from the Natural Resource Science program at the Adirondack Education Center (Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES), and community volunteers to help protect the health of the river and the aquatic life it supports through tree planting workshops. During these workshops, volunteers not only aid in the revegetation of a streambank, but also learn tree planting techniques that they can bring with them in future river stewardship.

   Thanks to One Tree Planted for funding these plantings.
