Meet at the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center.  We will have a brief talk about the work of CASRI, review the day’s work plan, then car pool to the planting site.  Weather can be unpredictable at this time of year but we will work rain or shine.  Dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes or boots, bring gloves and a water bottle.  We will have pizza for lunch.  RSVP please.  Questions?  Contact Dave Saville This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Who are we?

This website has been established and is being managed by the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy to support the work of the Central Appalachian Spruce Restoration Initiative (CASRI).

CASRI is a partnership of diverse interests with a common goal of restoring historic red spruce-northern hardwood ecosystems across the high elevation landscapes of Central Appalachia. It is comprised of private, state, federal, and non-governmental organizations who share a recognition of the importance of this ecosystem.
