Join us at the new Rappahannock Conservation Nursery every first Tuesday of the month from 2pm to 5pm. *The August 1st event will include a morning shift from 9am to 12pm and folks are encouraged to attend in the morning. This addition is due to high temperatures and afternoon thunderstorm threats.* FOR’s restoration team is building a native plant nursery and needs your help!
Spend the afternoon potting bare root saplings, re-potting small native trees, pruning native shrubs, or planting acorns to grow our native plant stock. This is a great opportunity to practice your plant ID and meet other folks interested in growing native species!
This work is outdoors at our tree nursery, so be sure to bring closed toed shoes and water. FOR will provide gloves, tools, and shade structures as needed. RSVP for the event to receive more information on each specific volunteer days activities.
