Upcoming Activities

Friday, February 23, 2018 – Tree Planting
8:30am – 12:30pm

Join Duke Forest staff to plant over 2,000 Longleaf Pine trees in a young stand that provides a buffer for an experimental site. Duke Forest will provide work gloves, tools, snacks, and water. As always, please wear closed-toed shoes and bring anything else that keeps you comfortable in the woods.  We’ll send specific location details as the dates get closer, and please remember to bring a signed waiver form with you: DF-68 Duke Forest General Volunteer.

We look forward to seeing you in the woods and appreciate your help taking care of the forest!
