About the Event
Plant longleaf pines with the National Park Service in Big Thicket National Preserve. We’ll enjoy a day in the woods and plant longleaf pine saplings to restore forest for the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker and other wildlife. Our work will also mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration. Scientific American stated, “The most important technology to fight climate change isn’t a technology at all; it’s reforestation.”
TCA helped establish Big Thicket National Preserve, America’s first National Preserve in 1974 which now protects 113,000 acres of wilderness. The Big Thicket is one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the world, home to more than 200 tree species, carnivorous plants, 47 mammal species, 300 species of birds, and many reptiles and amphibians.
