Restoring the American Elm Workshop

Hunger Mountain Co-op Community Room
Phone:802-223-8000
Address: 623 Stone Cutters Way

The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Theirs is a vision of a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives.

The Nature Conservancy in Vermont's Restoration & Ecological Management Fellow, Megan Gordon, presents this workshop on the American Elm, once the largest, longest-lived tree in the northern floodplains. Their demise in the 1970’s left a niche unfilled, which is why The Nature Conservancy plants genetically diverse elms to restore floodplains. Come learn about elm history & the journey to revive them on Vermont's landscapes.

Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To sign up for this free workshop, email your name and contact information to info@hungermountain.coop
