Tree Planting Volunteer Days

Looking for a dynamic, full-body workout? Want to get outdoors and get your hands dirty? Interested in learning more about perennial plants, ecology, and protecting our local waterways? We have the perfect opportunity for you, AND we really need your help!

Join our community of watershed stewards and riparian rangers as we install a 4 acre multifunctional riparian buffer this spring. We also need help maintaining our established riparian buffer plantings throughout the season.

Activities will include:

  • moving, hauling and spreading leaves
  • moving, hauling and spreading wood mulch
  • weeding planting beds
  • planting trees – digging planting holes, moving supplies and water, coordinating plantings, ect.
  • setting up tree shelters and wooden stakes
  • removing invasive species
  • live-staking

Are you up for the challenge? Let us know when you can help by signing up for your volunteer days below (click to register):

Last year we planted over 10,000 trees with the help of over 100 volunteers! We thank all of our dedicated volunteers who have come out week after week, rain or shine, to make a huge impact on the health of our local waterways. We will resume planting this spring when weather conditions are appropriate for planting.  Click the links below to register:
