Volunteer Commitment


  • We are asking for a three-year commitment from volunteers.
  • We expect it will take approximately six hours a year. 
  • The first year you will setup six circular plots in woodlands, preferably in areas known to contain deer.
  • Identify and tag between 20-50 individual seedlings of one or two species between the six plots.
  • Measure the natural height of each individual seedling.
  • The following two years you will return and re-measure the height of the seedlings.
  • The six plots must be at least 25 feet apart.
