Thunder Bay Field Naturalists Tree Planting

Minimize

THUNDER BAY, ON   ----   April 27, 2011  ---  The Thunder Bay Field Naturalists’ Pine Bay Nature Thunder Bay Field Naturalists’ Pine Bay Nature ReserveReserve has many important natural features: a Provincially Significant Wetland along the Lake Superior shore; a number of regionally rare species; a nursery for spawning fish at the mouth of the Pine River. But inland, a section of the property which has been logged several times with no replanting is dominated by small aspen trees.

TBFN has a plan to improve diversity at the site so that it will more closely resemble the historic forest. The planting area has been prepared by a group of Nature Guardian volunteers from Ontario Nature. On the weekend of May 14-15, buses will take volunteers to the site, south of the city on Highway 61, to plant 4000 Pine and Spruce seedlings. As the seedlings grow into mature trees, the forest will become habitable for moose, wolf, pine marten and lynx, as well as a wider range of forest birds and plants.

Please join us to spend one or both days in the fresh air, planting the seeds of a new forest. Free bus transport is provided to and from the site each day. Planting gear and seedlings are also provided.
