Trees Matter Shade Tree Events
Trees Matter will be facilitating the SRP Shade Tree Distribution Event in Mesa on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Learn more about this energy efficiency program at: http://www.savewithsrp.com/RD/shadetrees.aspx
This event will be outdoors, but we have massive shade structures that will keep us in shade at all times. We will have lots of cold water, bagels, cream cheese, snacks, and it will be super fun!
These events are volunteer-powered! And we would love YOUR help!
Trees Matter is in need of several volunteers to help with distributing about 2,000 desert-adapted shade trees to SRP participants. Over the course of the summer months, SRP participants attended tree care workshops, and selected 2 shade trees that they would receive once the weather was more suitable for planting. They will arrive to pick-up their trees between 8am-12:00pm. They will also have the opportunity to talk with tree experts to help provide additional advice on tree care! It's an exciting day for everyone (I mean, who doesn't smile when they're picking up free shade trees?), and we need lots of help to ensure the day runs smoothly.
There are many volunteer roles that help make the day a great success. You can read about each of the roles in the sign-up below, and sign-up directly for whichever sounds like the best fit for you. Roles range from customer service to more physically active roles!
The event will take place at:
Mesa Community College
1833 W Southern Ave
Mesa, AZ 85202
Our Volunteer Manager will send out an email of additional details, the week before the event.
Note: All volunteers under age 18 will need to have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian. We will have blank copies of the waiver on site, or you can download the youth waiver here and bring it with you.
