Calling all Nature Lovers to Springside Park – June 20
June 20, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
If you’re a nature lover and appreciate the beauty and importance of forests, please consider joining us for Weeding Wednesdays at TACF’s seed production orchard at Springside Park, 874 North St. Pittsfield, MA between 6:30 and 8:00PM on the first and third Wednesday of each month. The purpose of this orchard is to produce the highest quality American chestnut seed to be used for reintroduction to the forests of the Berkshires.
No experience necessary, just a willingness to help maintain this orchard and participate in one of the most interesting and important conservation projects of our time, the restoration of the American chestnut tree. Be sure to wear long pants and sturdy shoes, and bring along water, insect repellent, and sunscreen.
The orchard is located about ¼ mile on the dirt road in the park. For more information call or text TACF’s MA/RI Chapter president Lois at 508-667-9685.
