Although we once again do not have a spring workshop planned, we hope to recover some of that bank balance through a cooperative fund raiser with the Antrim Conservation District, and once again, after a number of hears, sales of our Wildlife Habitat Tree and Shrub packets.

These packets, which are available to any one, consist of five each on one to two foot Red Oak trees, Roselow Sargent Crab Apple trees, as well as five Red Osier Dogwood bushes, and five Serviceberry bushes (also known and marketed these days as “Saskatoon” berry bushes), for just $25, not including shipping.

All of these trees and shrubs are winter hardened one to two year-olds grown in the Ludington, Michigan, area. There is no limit on how many packets you can buy! Proceeds from sales of the packets will benefit the Traverse Bay Chapter’s winter feeding programs as well as the educational programs of the Antrim County Conservation District.

Orders will be accepted until April 10, 2012, and delivered approximately April 25, 2012, in time for the spring tree planting season.

To order, please send a check or money order for $25 plus $7 for shipping for each packet made out to the Antrim Conservation District to 110 South Intermediate Lake Drive, Central Lake, MI 49622. Sorry, no credit cards.

Anyone with questions regarding the packets is encouraged to call 231-533-8363 during regular weekly business hours, or contact me via email here.

We hope you will help us support the wild turkeys of northwestern lower Michigan!
