Tree Planting on the Richmond Greenway
December 16, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Winter rains means it is the season for tree planting! Join us for the first tree planting of the season as we start planting in a new bioswale on the Richmond Greenway at 33rd Street (near Ohio Ave). We are planting trees and native plants to create shade for the park and to provide habitat for local wildlife. Bring family and friends, and we’ll team up to work together to plant a new bioswale.
Help The Watershed Project celebrate our 20th anniversary this year! Join us to create a vibrant urban park along the Richmond Greenway and help us fulfill our mission to enhance green spaces and protect our watersheds.
Wear comfortable clothes that can get dirty and sturdy shoes. We will provide gloves, tools, water and light snacks. Bring layers if it is chilly, and a reusable water bottle if you have one.
No experience necessary – we will teach you all you need to know to plant a tree. We love school and volunteer groups, but please RSVP so we can make sure we bring plenty of supplies.
Appropriate for kids ages 12. Students are welcome to do community service and if under 18, a signed waiver from a parent or legal guardian is required. Download the waiver here, and bring to the event, or feel free to email us with questions. All participants will need to sign a waiver.
The event will continue rain or shine; if it is raining, you can see nearby low impact design projects (bioswales and rain gardens) in action!
For more information or waivers please contact Sharon, firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-495-4836.
We will also be planting trees and native plants on Friday, December 15th from 10am – 1pm and on Sunday, December 17th from 10am-1pm. Contact Sharon if you would like to join in!
See you on the Greenway!
