“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  The next best time is today.” – Chinese proverb

Join us to plant oak trees at the southern portion of Hemlock Draw Preserve on Saturday, April 26 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.   The trees we’ll be planting will provide important future habitat for many songbirds that visit the Baraboo Hills to nest and raise their young!
