Route 66 Trail @ Funks Grove Tree Planting Workday
May 21 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
In partnership with the Friends of the Constitution Trail, help us plant sapling trees along Route 66/Constitution Trail to improve air quality, sequester carbon, increase wildlife habitat, provide shade, and more! Volunteers will use shovels and other tools to plant root-ball sapling trees – 6-8′ tall. Volunteers must be 18 years old or older or alternately 12 years or older and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Tools and heavy equipment will be in use and all volunteers must be able to safely use hand tools, stay on their feet for 2 hours at a time and lift a moderate weight (~25 pounds). Please dress appropriately for weather conditions and working outside. Closed-toed shoes or boots are required – no sandals or flip-flops.
