Event Description

The Nature Conservancy is working to preserve and restore the longleaf pine habitat and related ecosystems in the Sandhills of NC. Last year we planted 35,000 longleaf pine seedlings on properties managed by the TNC in the NC Sandhills. The website listed above will tell you more about the TNC effort in this area. Planting longleaf pine seedlings is easy to do and all of the tools required will be provided. This is an excellent way to learn about the native habitat of the longleaf pines and help offset your carbon footprint at the same time. I will be posting more specific information about the exact location of the outing as it becomes available. The same opportunity will be offered on the following two Saturdays Feb 20 and Feb 27. If you are interested in learning more about our State Tree, I have several complimentary copies of Looking for Longleaf by Lawrence S. Earley to loan out. Please call me if you are interested in the outing and I will coordinate a car pooling effort.

Quewhiffle West Preserve:

You will need work gloves, water bottles, lunch and a drink.

Directions: Heading south on US 1 in Aberdeen take a left on 15-501 South shortly after crossing the train tracks. Follow 15-501 South for approximately 3 miles and make a left on Stubby Oaks Road. The preserve is 1/3 mile on the right. If you are coming North on 15-501 the turn is just after the Moore Coounty line.

Thanks for setting this up. I woudl like to reveiw "Looking for Longleaf" if I may borrow a copy.
I think carpooling would be the way to do this. My guess is that this would be an all day event, so for now, I selected the "might attend" option. Any ideas on how the time would run? I think the length of the program would help folks determine if they felt they could participate.
