WHAT TO WEAR/BRING: Volunteers are asked to bring a water bottle and wear long sleeve shirts, long pants, and closed toed shoes that are appropriate for digging. Keep in mind you will get dirty! All tools (shovels and pick axes) needed to plant trees, gloves and snacks will be provided.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Tree planting events are held rain or shine. Upon checking in at the volunteer table, you will be asked to sign a liability waiver. You will then be assigned to a planting zone. Following opening remarks, we will provide training on how to properly plant and care for trees. Volunteers will be with your group throughout the event to guide you on which trees to plant in which locations. Expect to dig, mulch, and get your hands dirty!
PETS: We love pets, but for their safety and the safety of others, please leave them at home when you are volunteering at tree events.
