Long Point Basin Land Trust was founded in 1996 with a mission to protect and restore functioning ecosystems in the central Carolinian Region. This is accomplished through land ownership, land management and nature stewardship. LPBLT currently protects 10 nature reserves, totaling 671 acres, which provide opportunities for people to connect with nature through hands-on outdoor experiences.
We are so very excited to be launching the new Explore the Outdoors program, which will bring people together to explore and appreciate the amazing natural areas in this region.
All of the events are FREE and open to anyone! However, registration is recommended for attendance at any of the events and will open one month prior to each event. The number of available spaces varies by event and may be limited. Do not forget to bring to the events whatever you need to enjoy your time outdoors – water bottle, hiking boots, sunscreen, bug spray, snacks, etc.

How healthy is your forest?
August 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you ever wonder how to determine if your trees are healthy? Want to learn how to identify the different types of diseases and insects that may affect your trees? Would you like some helpful tips on assessing the condition of a tree? Then this workshop is for you!
Led by Dan Marina, Forest Conservation Officer with Norfolk County, this workshop will teach participants the basics when it comes to determining a tree’s health, including what signs or symptoms you should be aware of in order to
spot a tree with declining health. Also included will be a lesson on common tree defects that tree markers look for when selecting trees for harvest. Taking into account the rising gypsy moth population we have locally, we will also take some time to show you how to determine the population of gypsy moth in your woodlot and assess the damage done.
