Tree Planting – “Day To Serve” event
October 7 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM| Free
Plant trees for cleaner air and water in Baltimore County!
We are looking for student volunteers and adults who care about the Earth, our watershed, and the Chesapeake Bay! Do you like being outside in nature and don’t mind working hard? Join us, and make a difference for future generations.
Community service learning hours available. Perfect for students, Scout troops, religious affiliation groups, corporate volunteer groups, families, singles and neighbors! Children ages 8 years and up must be accompanied by an adult.
We’re excited to co-sponsor this event with the Retirement and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Baltimore County as part of Maryland’s Day To Serve Initiative. Day to Serve is a community service initiative that joins Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia and West Virginia in an effort to encourage residents to get out and volunteer.
More than 28,000 trees have been planted throughout the Gunpowder Watershed by enthusiastic volunteers over the past 26 years, and we need YOUR help to plant even more!
This event is rain or shine.
What to bring: Remember to wear boots, pants, long sleeve shirt, hat, gloves, and bring rain gear and water bottle. Water jug and a light snack will be provided.
