Join Nature Conservancy staff, Climate Change Coalition of Door County volunteers, and Sturgeon Bay High School students on April 30, 10 am – 2 pm, to plant 3,000 white cedar, red pine and white spruce trees at the Conservancy’s Kangaroo Lake Preserve to celebrate Earth Day by connecting with nature.
Volunteers may drop in anytime during the event and plant for as long as they’d like. Parking is available at the preserve entrance on S. Highland Road. If the parking lot is full, park on the wide shoulder off the road. A staff person will be present at the site to provide orientation and instruction.
If available, bring work gloves, a shovel (round‐point), and a five‐gallon bucket to carry tree seedlings. The Nature Conservancy will have water, juice and snacks available on site, but bring a lunch if staying for the day or through the lunch hour.
The Conservancy would like to give a special thanks to Seaquist Orchards in Ellison Bay for keeping the trees in cold storage until the planting day.
To get to the preserve from Baileys Harbor, take County F northwest for about 1.5 to two miles to the intersection of South Highland Road and County F. Take the left fork at the intersection (straight ahead) onto South Highland Road. Travel about 1.5 miles on S. Highland to the preserve entrance. There’s a small parking area and a sign.
