Atlantic White Cedar Tree Planting
Date: March 24, 2018
Time: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Location: Snow Hill, MD, USA
Join the National Aquarium Conservation Team in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and the Chesapeake Bay Trust to restore the Atlantic white cedar habitat in Nassawango Creek Preserve. The 15-square-mile preserve is comprised of wetland and upland habitat and is home to 60 species of migratory birds and a number of rare plant species.
This planting is part of an ongoing restoration effort through the Aquarium’s Atlantic White Cedar Program, which encourages students in Worcester and Somerset counties to become environmental stewards through hands-on opportunities to care for trees in a nursery pond on their school grounds.
Pre-registration is required for this event. An informational email containing all details of the planting will be sent one week before the event to all registered volunteers. Participants must be at least 10 years old. All volunteers under 18 must be supervised by an adult.
