About the Event
The Rocks is a 1,593 acre tree farm in Bethlehem, NH that is owned and managed by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. The farm grows Christmas trees and produces maple syrup, and proceeds from both support the Forest Society's land conservation and stewardship work statewide. We are looking for volunteer assistance to help plant a new crop of seedling xmas trees in early May. This activity involves working in small groups (4-5 people) to hand-plant small trees in pre-drilled holes, and does involve kneeling/getting up and down routinely. The planting fields at the Rocks have beautiful views of the Presidential Range of the White Mountains to inspire while you work!
Workday will run rain or shine 9:30am-3:30pm with time for BYO lunch/breaks. For extremely inclement weather, look for an email the evening before; if we are going to cancel or postpone we'll do it then. NOTE: This work involves getting up/down from a kneeling position repeatedly, but does not involve heavy lifting or shoveling.
