Superior Watershed Volunteer Events - Tree Planting Workshop


Come and learn about the ecological history of the north shore forest and do your part to help restore it!

Have you ever taken a drive up the north shore and thought, “Why are all of these birch trees dying?” Learn the answer to these questions and more in a presentation by regional experts on the north shore forest. After the presentation, join the effort to restore the shore by helping the US Forest Service for a planting project.

This is a family friendly event. Join us for part of the day or just a few hours. Register below to receive a free lunch.
