Pipeline Restoration Project at the BRP - Day One: Saturday, October 5, 2024

10/5/2024 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM ET

The FBRP are restoring a section of the BRP that was clear-cut in 1990 by the Evesham MUA for water management.  We are re-foresting 4 former clear-cut unmarked trails by planting Pitch Pine Trees and Lowbush Blueberry in these areas. See map and project plan below.

Day One – Saturday:  Volunteers will use shovels to plant the pitch pine trees and low bush blueberry according to the planting plan.  This includes the 7 pipeline end areas = 154 plants, the added Pipeline #3 trail areas = 60 plants, and Pipeline #3 & 5 middle areas = 70 plants (284 total plants to be installed).  Volunteers will then rake and spread around the plantings existing forest duff and acorns obtained from the surrounding forest floor.
Day Two – Sunday: Volunteers will continue the ground surface finishing of Pipeline #3 and #5 by raking and spreading existing forest duff and acorns obtained from the surrounding forest floor.
We will finish installing marker whip posts with restoration signage, roping, etc. to block-off the unmarked trail areas and protect the new planting.
Lunch and beverages will be provided on both days.
What to Bring:  work gloves, shovels, rakes, garden trowels, and a wheelbarrow if available.
What to Wear:  Dress for the weather.  Hiking or heavy boots are recommended.
Where to Meet:  Meet at Bortons Road Trailhead
This project is funded by the FBRP and also a significant donation from Laurel Oak Wealth Management Group, a local private wealth advisory of Ameriprise Financial Services, LLC.
Note: In order for us to compile an accurate roster of volunteers, there is a separate registration page for each day of the event. If you plan to be a restoration hero and attend both days, please make sure to register for both. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
