Recent activities with the nursery

On March 22nd, Christian Marks of The Nature Conservancy joined us at the nursery to graft slippery elm buds and whips onto resistant stock. This project was open to students and the college community.


On March 30, Keith Roberts led a group to Whitehall to collect black willow cuttings. Keith gave an overview of ethical collecting as well as tree and shrub identification. Once the cuttings grow roots, they will be planted in containers, grown to marketable size and sold for use in restoration plantings.IMG_0735

Education and Outreach programming with the nursery and support of this blog is made possible with funding through Lake Champlain Basin Program.
