Help Us Purchase Trees and Shrubs to Restore Nature at Wehr

Our staff and volunteers have been busy removing invasive buckthorn and Eurasian bittersweet from our oak savanna and observation blind areas. Now that the sites are prepared, we are ready to restore them by planting native trees and shrubs, but we need your help. Please support our land restoration efforts by donating money to purchase native plants that will provide habitat for birds, pollinators, and other wildlife. Donors can choose which species they would like to support and can even help plant their tree/shrub at our September planting event.

How You Can Help

 

  • Look over the list of trees and shrubs below and choose your favorite (Shop early as there are a limited number of each type!)
  • Click the button to purchase your favorite from the Nature Store
  • Next, click the donation form below to fill in important details about your gift, including if you are donating in honor of a loved one.
  • Use the form to let us know if you’ll attend the Planting Event or if rather have us do the work!

 

We plan on geolocating all donated trees so families can follow the progress of their donation. Your one-of-a-kind gift will make a lasting difference here at Wehr.
