Create a natural area in Fernwood
People are invited to put on their boots, grab a shovel and help with the second stage of the Fernwood Confederation Forest.
The Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project is continuing the planting of a new Acadian forest on the beautiful Seacow Head Cliffs property, a designated natural area owned by the Island Nature Trust.
Today, the Macphail Woods staff will host a volunteer planting afternoon at the Fernwood site, 1-4 p.m.
Volunteers will be planting native trees, shrubs, wildflowers and ferns such as red oak, wild rose and blue flag iris.
Throughout the afternoon, Macphail Woods staff will be teaching best planting practices, offering pruning tips and helping with identification.
