Earth Day Tree TLC at East Metro Park
April 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Please come and join us in giving our public trees some much needed Tender Loving Care. We’ll be clearing debris and weeds from around the base of the trees and then spreading mulch to protect their roots from foot traffic and keep them nice and cool during our summer months. East Metro Park is a beautiful public space that deserves more attention! We will discuss the importance of urban forest stewardship and how correctly mulching a tree will help it survive harsh summer conditions.
Bring a water bottle and come prepared to do physical labor: long pants, gloves, closed toe shoes and sun protection. Mulch is dusty, so you may want sunglasses and a hat as well. All ages are welcome. Water, light refreshments, gloves, and tools will be provided.
