Volunteers Needed 10/30

Tree Planting:

We will be planting trees at Billings Farm on Sunday October 30th, starting at 10am.  We will meet at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) parking lot in Quechee, VT between 9:30 and 9:45am, at which time we will be car-pooling over to the Billings Farm site.  This project is repairing the buffer that we planted last year.  Some of the trees took an awful beating from Irene.  Please come out and help!!!  Bring boots, gloves, appropriate clothing, water, snack and a shovel (if you have one) to help us get these trees in the ground.

Also on the 30th:
After the tree planting we will head over to Hartland and Lull’s Brook for some afternoon fun.  The tree planting we did there is looking good and we have a new sign that explains the project for visitors.  We will install the sign near the Hartland Library.  Come join us, the Hartland Garden Club and others from 2 – 4pm at the Hartland Library.
Michael Caduto, Local Author, Performer and Naturalist in a presentation of his new children’s book, Riparia’s River, and a presentation about riparian buffers.  He will be joined by his wife, Marie Caduto, Watershed Coordinator for Vermont’s Department of Environmental Conservation, who will lead an on-stream discussion about the benefits of stream bank restoration and riparian buffers.
