Transplanting Forest Seedlings

October 18 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

$30

Join Lee Stevenson, founder of Project Ponderosa, for a hands-on workshop to learn how to identify and transplant a variety of native forest seedlings, including Grand Fir, White Fir, Mountain Hemlock, Snowbush, Manzanita, Mahala Mat, Kinnikinnnick, Paintbrush and more. You’ll learn where to find these native species locally and how to successfully collect and incorporate them into your own landscape.

The first half of the program will take place outdoors in the amphitheater and then the group will travel to one or more locations near Sunriver (within 10 miles) for plant collection. Please bring your own pots/containers, work gloves, and shovel if you have. Participants should also obtain a free Forest Products Free Use Permit from the U.S. Forest Service (if possible) if they wish to collect transplants during the field trip.

This program is limited to 10 participants and early registration is recommended. Masks are required throughout the program. Review  COVID-19 safety protocols HERE.
