Ruth Porter Mall Spring Tree Planting
March 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us in planting 30 trees as we celebrate the St Vincent greenway and all it has to offer. Helping hands of all ages are welcome and costumes are encouraged!
WHERE: Ruth Porter Mall Park at the intersection of Etzel and Blackstone Ave. Street Parking is available for participants
WHEN: Saturday morning from 9:00am to 12:00pm
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. We 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.
Thank you for helping expand our precious tree canopy & for making our community a better place! We are grateful for your support and are counting on your help!
