Jeffersonville/Clarksville Tree Planting October 22nd, 9:00am-1pm

It’s tree planting season, y’all! We’re crossing the “pond” to help the residents in Southern Indiana restore their urban tree canopy. Join Louisville Grows in digging towards our goal of planting 1,000 trees this Fall. Trained Citizen Foresters will lead groups of volunteers to properly plant trees on residential properties. No experience is necessary, everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us!

Details:

Registration will take place from 8:30am to 8:50am.

Planting groups will depart at 9am.

Snacks will be provided.

Guidelines for Volunteers:

You can bring your own gloves, but they will also be provided.

Please bring a filled water bottle. Water will be available at check in.

Dress appropriately for the weather. You’ll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

Closed-toed shoes are required.

Waterproof outerwear is recommended if rain is forecasted. We will plant trees come rain or shine.

Masks are appreciated but not mandatory. If you are not feeling well, please do not attend.

If severe weather is expected, you will be notified about an alternate event date.
