We will meet at Cavness Ranch beginning at 9 a.m. and ending the day at 3 p.m.

There will be an opportunity to carpool from Olympia which will be determined as we get closer to the date.   

Participants should expect to work in the soil and possibly some muddy conditions as we plant these small trees in a large area of the ranch. No previous experience is necessary as the CNLM coordinator will explain planting techniques. More information regarding appropriate clothing and conditions will be added once we are closer to the work party date.
