Black Knot Fungus Removal at Bunchberry Meadows with EALT and NCC

Bunchberry Meadows is 640 acres of habitat that supports moose, deer, and birds galore. It is a unique landscape that is filled with large patches of unusual forest types for this region, with many mature jack pine trees, and patches of both pure birch and tamarack trees. Every year at our Conservation Lands we fight to protect trees in the Prunus family (e.g. cherry trees) and others from black knot fungus, which grows within and on the outside of branches, eventually killing the tree. At this event we will remove as much fungus as we can find, and we’ll record the spots we find it for future monitoring. Nature Conservancy of Canada staff and volunteers with be joining us to tackle this big project!

We will meet at 10:00 am at Bunchberry Meadows, carpooling available on request. We will finish our work around 3 pm. Wear sturdy shoes and warm, comfortable clothes, and bring a lunch, water, hat, and a camera or binoculars if you'd like. Tools, gloves and extra snacks will be provided. Additional information will be sent to you several days in advance of the event.

This event is now full, thank you!
