Community Happenings
May 14, 2022
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, 294 Crosby Brook Road, Unity. Join Conservation Biologist Aleta McKeage to learn about the role assisted tree species migration may play in maintaining resilient forests in Maine and help MOFGA and Waldo County SWCD establish a small climate-adapted tree research site.

During this hands-on volunteer workday, we'll briefly discuss the stresses native trees are currently experiencing, explore the risks and benefits of thoughtfully introducing new species, and learn which species may be a good fit for Maine's projected climate conditions.

We'll also demonstrate proper planting techniques before setting out several dozen new trees in the MOFGA forest. Co-sponsored by Waldo County Soil and Water Conservation District.
