Working alongside FMR and Dakota County staff, volunteers will install and tend to tree tubes, helping to protect seedlings planted this spring. In addition to protecting the young trees from rabbits and deer, the tubes will shelter them from high winds and create a sort of microclimate to help them make it through their first winter.
Located in the center of Dakota County, Whitetail Woods is bordered by Vermillion River wildlife and aquatic management areas. This event is part of the Vermillion Stewards program, providing opportunities for hands-on stewardship of this unique cold prairie river and its watershed.
