CHAYCC Seedling Planting
The Caledonia Hunters & Anglers Youth Conservation Club (CHAYCC)
thanks H&AWOA for the tree seedlings given to the club. The children
had a fun day planting the seedlings on the Caledonia Hunters & Anglers
Association property, along the Grand River. To date all of the seedlings
are healthy and growing. The Caledonia Hunters & Anglers Association
are H&AWOA members.
CHAYCC hopes the trees will help to enhance the natural beauty of the
property and assist in establishing the fact that the CHAYCC is dedicated
in its conservation efforts. ( above photo by CHAYCC )
Each spring members of H&AWOA are
eligible to apply for a maximum of
50 free native tree and shrub
seedlings. Forms are included in a
WHITE PINE SEED ORCHARD
SEEDLING DIG UPS:
When available, H&AWOA members
have had the opportunity to enter
the WPSO and dig up white pine
We have a 'bare root policy' to
protect the orchard. Our 'dig ups' will
be announced in our newsletter and
on this website.

landowner Maggie Ker (and her assistants Raven and Toulah), Stewardship Council
members, Dan Romanoski, Ron Edwards, Art Lyall and his son Alex. The site was made
