Stewardship - Powell Creek Complex

Join us at our Powell Creek Protected Area for a morning of removing protective tree tubes. Tree tubes protect new plants from being browsed by deer, elk, and rodents and encourage vertical growth. The planted trees at Powell Pastures are doing well and no longer need to be protected, so we need your help to remove these plastic tubes from the property so we can reuse them later and keep the forest healthy!
