Shortleaf Pine Tree Planting at Turnipseed Nature Preserve

Join NCWF and Wake County Tues., Jan. 31, 10 AM – 1 PM, as we return to Turnipseed Nature Preserve to supplement a prior planting with the addition of shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata) seedlings. Planting trees has numerous benefits for the environment with their ability to improve soil and water conditions, sequester carbon, moderate climate, reduce erosion and provide critical habitat for wildlife. We hope you’ll be a part of this fun and meaningful volunteer opportunity in the outdoors! Please bring weather appropriate clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty, a water bottle and closed toed shoes (work gloves, planting tools and a water cooler will be provided). Those who register will receive a map with parking and location details in the registration confirmation email. Please go to the Hunt Valley Trail entrance and not the Pleasants Road entrance.
