Volunteer

We will reach our 5 million tree goal with your help. Volunteer with us to plant and care for trees where you live, work, and play.

Tree Planting and Care Volunteers

Tree planting and stewardship events take place all year long, but we are especially busy with tree planting and care during the rainy months. Most events take place on Saturday mornings and include all of the training and tools!

Planting Event Volunteer (November – April)

In the winter season, you’ll find us planting native trees, shrubs, and grasses at our various restoration sites across our six-county region. Help us get native vegetation in the ground and off to a good start! Family-friendly, best for volunteers 6 years and older.

Mulching Party Volunteer (year-round)

Mulching is one of the easiest ways to protect and nourish trees while ensuring soil retains moisture. Join us in mulching young and mature trees alike at our various parks and restoration, NeighborWoods, and Community Shade sites. Family-friendly, best for volunteers 6 years and older.

Site Care Volunteer (year-round)

Our restoration sites often need a little TLC. We welcome you to join our clean-up and care efforts. These events may include mulching, removing tree tubing, removing or installing irrigation systems, and litter collection as well as other clean-up tasks. Family-friendly, best for volunteers 6 years and older.
