FALL 2017 TREE PLANTING DATES
To volunteer, email Tree Fred Volunteer Coordinator Steve Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be planting rain or shine, unless there’s thunder and lightning. Be sure to wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. We’ll provide all the tools and safety equipment necessary, though volunteers should bring sunglasses (or if they wear glasses – that will be fine) for eye protection. We will have safety goggles but they are not as comfortable as glasses.. All planting teams will be led by experienced volunteers and Tree Fredericksburg Tree Stewards. Be sure to show up 15 minutes early for instructions and planting demonstration. Kids and groups are welcome.
This is a green event. We will have water and cups but no bottle water. We are asking all who volunteer with us to bring a water bottle to fill and use so we do not have any plastic waste.
