Benzie Conservation District - Spring Planting Workshop
The Benzie Conservation District is sponsoring a Spring Planting Workshop on Thursday, March 11, 6:30-8:00 pm virtually via Zoom. It's time to start planning for your spring planting projects! Join BCD staff to learn about the bare-root native tree and shrub seedlings available through the Conservation District this spring. Gain understanding on matching the right tree to the right site for the right reason with District Forester, Kama Ross. Advanced planning, preparing the site, amending the soil, proper planting techniques and follow-up care will all be discussed to help you have good success with any sized planting project.
New species that are available through our Assisted Range Expansion Project, ATREP, will be presented by Maddy Baroli, Project Manager. Planting species that are native to central and southern Michigan hopes to help mitigate the challenges of climate change and help keep our forest landscape diverse and vibrant. Visit www.atrep.net for more information.
Conservation Districts across the country have been offering quality, affordable trees and shrubs for decades. This workshop will help landowners make good decisions as they make planting decisions. There is no cost to attend the workshop, but registration is required to receive the Zoom link, and can be done by contacting Aimé Merizon, at the Benzie Conservation District at firstname.lastname@example.org, by March 10.
