Help the Conservancy take care of street trees on 9th and 10th street! Volunteers will be using small hand tools to aerate tree bed soils, applying compost, and removing debris. We will also refurbish the wildflower planters on 9th Street.

Please wear closed-toed shoes (boots preferred), clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, and hat/sunscreen if needed. We will provide all tools, materials, and gloves including snacks and water. Bring a water bottle if you have one. All volunteers under 18 must have a parent/guardian sign a waiver to bring to the event. Any volunteers under 14 years of age must be accompanied by a parent/guardian for the event.
