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.
