About the event

Access into this area requires a truck or SUV. Carpooling is strongly recommended as parking is very limited. We will be meeting at the "turn to ghost" marked on the map and then driving in a convoy to our final location. We will not be walking very far, but we will be walking up very steep terrain so good footwear is recommended.

Some species where we're going:

- junipers (communis and horizontalis)

- douglas fir

- aspen poplar

- black spruce

- lodgepole pine

You will need:

- a tree collecting permit (allows you to collect up to 20 trees for transplanting) Permits can be purchased here

- a shovel

- clippers and/or a small saw

- large trash bags

- water (for you and for your trees)

- a snack

- (optional) gardening gloves

- (optional) sphagnum moss

- (optional) root growth hormone
