Chesapeake Conservancy Seeking Volunteers To Identify, Collect Livestakes In Centre, Northumberland March 19, 24

The Chesapeake Conservancy is seeking individuals and groups wanting to learn about live staking to sign up for a unique volunteer opportunity to identify and collect livestakes-- live trees and shrubs-- at events in Centre and Northumberland counties.
Volunteers will collect live stakes to be embedded into the banks of streams for forest restoration projects later this year. Live stakes are living shrub and tree branches that root when inserted into the soil.
Volunteers will learn how to identify live staking species, cut live stakes, and store them before installation.
The livestake collection events will be held--
-- March 19: Montandon Wetlands in Northumberland County starting at 8:30 with a morning group and 12:30 with an afternoon group, Click Here to register; and
-- March 24: Spring Mills, Centre County at Harter Road, Click Here to register.
Anyone who signs up for the event also gets an email with instructions of where to meet a few days in advance of the events.
Sign up as an individual or a group at the links above or by contacting Adrienne Gemberling with the Chesapeake Conservancy by calling 570-372-4762 or sending email to:
