Thank You, Advisory Board Volunteers!

Kudos to all the volunteers who helped out at a tree care event yesterday! 5 volunteers from The Advisory Board and one resident from Petworth came out to help us water 25 trees at Sherman Circle and 15 trees at Saint Gabriel's Catholic Church.

Casey Trees hosted a Community Tree Planting event at Saint Gabriel's last November (see photos from this event), and one at Sherman Circle last April. It's important that the young trees we planted at both sites now receive proper care and adequate water. Yesterday, Thursday June 21, we were able to attend to their needs with the help of the volunteers. Thank you so much for your time and effort!

Volunteer groups will be helping us follow 25 to Stay Alive for our newly planted trees all summer. If you are interested in organizing a tree care event, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Carol Herwig at Feel free to check out our other volunteer opportunities as well.
