|Tree Planting at Carlos Avery WMA with Great River Greening
|Great River Greening
|1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join Great River Greening for a Saturday afternoon tree planting at Carlos Avery WMA. Carlos Avery WMA is a vast natural area of 20,000 acres. Its primary purpose is to provide hunting opportunities, but it is also a popular destination for fall color watching, bird watching, fishing, and scenic drives.
Great River Greening has partnered with Carlos Avery for more than 5 years on various projects throughout the site, from forest restoration to wild rice seeding. We have also worked on prairie restorations, including a volunteer event at the Viking Drive units. In that same theme, we are working with Carlos Avery to restore three former agriculture fields that have been fallow for many years.
This is a family-friendly event. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to attend. No previous knowledge or experience is necessary, we will provide the tools and training required.
We will have light snacks and extra water available, however, please bring your own reusable water bottle and any additional snacks or lunch items you may need. We will have access to the park shelter and facilities.
Capacity is limited and registration is required. Learn more and sign up today!
