Atlantic White Cedar Planting

Saturday, April 1, 2017, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Registration is now closed.

Join the National Aquarium Conservation Team in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and the Chesapeake Bay Trust to restore the Atlantic white cedar habitat in Nassawango Creek Preserve. The 15-square-mile preserve is comprised of wetland and upland habitat and is home to 60 species of migratory birds and a number of rare plant species. This planting is part of an ongoing restoration effort through the Aquarium’s Wetland Nursery Program, which encourages students in Worcester and Somerset counties to become environmental stewards through hands-on opportunities to care for trees in a nursery pond on their school grounds.

All volunteers must pre-register. Participants must be at least 10 years old; anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. This event is rain or shine, so please dress for the weather. Please contact Stephanie Mathias at conserve@aqua.org or 410-576-1014 for registration information and event details.
