Volunteers sought to plant trees

-A A +A

 

Santa Fe National Forest is seeking volunteers to plant trees within the 2011 Las Conchas Fire burn area, near Los Alamos. This activity will take place 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 19 at the Pajarito Canyon Trailhead, just south of the Pajarito Ski Hill turn off.

Douglas fir trees will be planted on 14 acres along the 501 corridor as part of a larger planting initiative. The trees were ordered in the fall of 2011, immediately after the Las Conchas Fire. Local seed stock was germinated in the spring of 2013 and the trees are now ready for planting.

A dibble tool (to create a shallow hole) and a soil plug (to measure the precise depth) will be provided along with hard hats. Volunteers are asked to bring their own boots, gloves, long pants, long sleeve shirts, safety glasses, sunscreen, food, and water. 

Volunteers will participate under the Southwest Nordic Ski Club Partnership Agreement, which means that every volunteer hour will receive a match of Federal funds to restore recreational trails in the Los Alamos area. 

For more information and to sign up as a volunteer, call the Espanola Ranger District at 753-7331, or email Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Sublett at jasublett@fs.fed.us.
