Atlantic White Cedar Tree Planting

Maryland

Help restore habitat at Nassawango Creek Preserve by planting Atlantic white cedar seedlings.

This volunteer opportunity is in partnership with the National Aquarium Conservation Team (ACT!) and the Chesapeake Bay Trust.  The planting is part of an ongoing restoration effort through the Aquarium’s Wetland Nursery Program, which encourages students in Worcester and Somerset counties to become environmental stewards through hands-on opportunities to care for trees in a nursery pond on their school grounds.

A registration link will be available in early 2019.  The minimum age of volunteers is 10 years old.  Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Nassawango Creek Preserve is located on Maryland's Eastern Shore, approximately 2.5 hours from Washington/Baltimore.
