March 2 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Newly planted trees need TLC to survive. Spend a couple hours to help make our Reforestation projects a success!
Tree maintenance involves removing invasive plants, checking planted trees to see if the shelter needs to be removed and removing if necessary, digging out the planting tube, and making sure the plant is upright.
Community service learning hours available. Limited to 10 participants (ages 13+).
When: Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 10 am – 1 pm. Please arrive 15 minutes early so you can sign in and receive tools.
What to bring: Wear long pants, long sleeved shirt and closed-toed shoes (boots are best). Dressing in layers is best as you will warm up as you work and may want to shed a layer not just a heavy coat. Bring warm gloves if you have them. Bring a filled water bottle.
Directions: Gunpowder Falls State Park – Hammerman area. 7200 Graces Quarters Road, Middle River, MD 21220. From MD Route 40 turn onto Ebenezer Road east (intersection with Double T diner). Continue on Ebenezer Road until it changes to Graces Quarters Road. Look for the park entrance and turn left onto Park Drive. Continue a short distance to the entrance station. Tell the attendant (if one is there) that you are there for GVC Tree Maintenance; you won’t need to pay the park fee. Before the event, the event leader will email you the exact meeting location within the park.
