The 2020 seedling distribution originally scheduled for May 16th is being delayed to protect purchasers and sale volunteers in light of the changing Covid-19 mandates and restrictions. Our 2020 seedling distribution will be much different than in previous years and we may be required to move distribution locations to accommodate a much different process.
We have tentatively selected Saturday, June 20th as an alternate pickup date
This date is fluid and could be moved further into late-June to early-July, or even later, depending on the status of the coronavirus restrictions as they develop. Future decisions made by Governor Dunleavy and municipal governments in Anchorage, the MatSu Valley and Kenai Peninsula will affect our decision when to move forward with the 2020 seedling distribution. We will be updating all purchasers with additional information once details have been worked out to protect volunteers bundling the seedlings as well as volunteers and purchasers arriving for the scheduled seedling distribution. Again, 20 June is a potential date for that to happen but is subject to change, so please monitor your email for future updates from us.
The SAF Cook Inlet Chapter appreciates your patience during these trying times. We realize that purchasers, and our sale volunteers must make some hard decisions during a busy part of the Alaska summer. We can get this done when it’s time to do it.
In the interim, we’ve included a few reminders that will help the eventual seedling distribution go smoother. Keep in mind that this will not be our usual seedling distribution and we will need to figure out an effective social distancing process (details will be provided in a future email update):
- Please check your original seedling order(s) to ensure that your requested pickup location remains the same (unless you’ve already informed us)
- Please bring a copy of your seedling order(s) to the distribution, if possible. If you can’t locate your original order, a handwritten note with your name and number of species bundles you paid for will be verified against what we received.
- If you’re unable to make the scheduled seedling pickup, select an alternate to pickup your order and provide them with a copy of your order(s) or the same information requested in #2. above
- Any questions from here on out can be sent to our Gmail account: firstname.lastname@example.org We’ll do our best to respond in a timely manner. Again, monitor your email for future updates from us.
