Join The Piedmont Environmental Council for a volunteer tree planting at the Lane Property on Wednesday, November 9. Volunteers will be needed for two shifts, one from 10am - 1pm and the other from 1:30pm to 4:00pm, to help plant 330 native trees and shrubs along a tributary of Kilby's Creek to enhance water quality and wildlife habitat as part of our Headwater Stream Initiative!
Volunteer activities include tree planting, which involves scalping (removing grass with a hoe), digging holes, planting, and pounding wooden stakes. This is a family-friendly event, and volunteers of all ages are welcome! Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
This event is rain or shine. In the event of dangerous weather, we will reschedule the day’s planting. We will provide all of the necessary tools for planting, extra water, and snacks (no lunch will be provided - please pack your own). Volunteers are encouraged to wear boots or closed-toe shoes and clothing that they’re comfortable getting dirty. Please bring bottled water, sunscreen, and bug spray if needed. Terrain is mostly flat, with a short walk to the planting site. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your shift begins, as we will be conducting a brief training and walking to the site together!
Note: Carpooling is encouraged due to limited parking space.
***Please be aware that if you sign up for a time slot through SignupGenius, we are counting on you to attend and help us achieve our planting goals! We can’t do it without you, so please do let us know if you are no longer able to volunteer by contacting Robin Cross at [email protected] ***
