Statewide Acorn Collection

Date: October 10, 2009
Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Div. of Fish & Wildlife’s Landowner Incentive Program is planning another Acorn Collection this year. Thanks to volunteer efforts last year, we were able to collect almost 150 pounds of acorns! Some of those acorns were planted immediately at reforestation sites, and the rest were planted in raised beds to be used as bare root seedlings for future reforestation efforts.

This year’s Acorn Collection will be held on Saturday, October 10th from 9am to noon.

Collections will be held at the following locations:

New Castle County
Lums Pond State Park

1068 Howell School Rd.
Bear, DE 19701
