Volunteer Opportunity – Three Springs Nature Preserve

Posted · Add Comment

Join the Door County Land Trust for a morning of work at Three Springs Nature Preserve to control non-native scotch pine. Scotch pine is a coniferous tree in the pine family (Pinaceae) that strives in old fields and open forested areas like at Three Springs. We have worked here in the past to control scotch pine, and we have planted native trees at the site this spring. So we would like to continue our efforts!

We will be meeting at 9 am at the preserve parking area and working until noon on Tuesday, May 17th. The Three Springs parking area is located at 10442 Three Springs Road. To get to the Preserve from Highway 42 in Sister Bay, turn east onto County ZZ and travel 1.5 miles past the intersection of County ZZ and Old Stage Road. Turn right onto Three Springs Road. The preserve parking area is located 0.1 miles past the preserve sign down the gravel lane.

We will be using chain saws to cut larger trees and loppers for smaller ones. We will also be clearing areas where larger trees have been cut. The Land Trust will be bringing the necessary equipment (loppers, hand saws, protective equipment, water) but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Please RSVP by Monday, May 16th, 2016 if you plan to bring your chain saw. volunteer@doorcountylandtrust.org
