Call for Volunteers to Plant Trees!

 

RIVER PARK NEEDS YOU! CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HELP PLANT TREES

 

Three times in the past three years, River Park neighbors have joined together to plant trees in our neighborhood. It is such a great community experience! Please join us for the fourth tree planting of the River Park Tree Canopy Project – a neighborhood group working with the Sacramento Tree Foundation and SMUD to plant trees at River Park homes. It’s fun! Meet your neighbors and help build our beautiful tree canopy! We will be planting more than 30 trees so we need a lot of helpers.

 

Where: Glenn Hall Park

When: 9 a.m., Saturday, November 4, meet for coffee, treats, and orientation.

 

What happens at the event is that we meet, have coffee and treats (yes, donuts will be served!), and have a brief orientation. You will be assigned to a small work group of River Park neighbors. Each group has a leader who has experience in tree-planting. Each group will move from site to site, planting trees that have been sited and delivered by the Sacramento Tree Foundation.

Please sign up here: http://bit.ly/2k6V5Rj. The sign up will help us plan our work groups. Also you will be able to sign the waiver.

Be sure to wear gardening shoes and clothes, and wear gloves. You may want to bring water and a hat as well. All tools will be provided by the Tree Foundation.

The River Park Tree Canopy Project is a volunteer group sponsored by the River Park Neighborhood Association, the River Park Garden Club, Caleb Greenwood School, our Council member Jeff Harris, the Sacramento Tree Foundation, and SMUD.
