PRWIN 4-H Tree Planting Day And Seedling Program

 

Due to the current COVID 19 circumstances, PRWIN has decided to make the difficult decision to cancel our 4-H Tree Planting Day and all personal seedling orders with our 2020 Seedling Program. We want to do our part to continue with social and physical distancing and refrain from social gatherings and contact in our community.

In these uncertain times, it is best to postpone our program until 2021. We will keep all 2020 personal orders on file and will contact you later in the year to confirm that you would like to participate in our program for 2021. We are hoping to move forward with our own machine planting projects this year but we are still not sure if the seedlings will arrive in time from the nursery.

We will keep you updated with the progress of our current machine planting projects and look forward to you joining us.

Please stay healthy and safe.

Warm Regards,

 

PRWIN Board of Directors.
