Georgetown is looking for volunteers for the tree planting event on February 26
Volunteer tree planters wanted
The City of Georgetown is looking for volunteers to help plant 30 trees from 9 a.m. to noon on February 26 in San Gabriel Park.
Volunteers and staff will plant native and adapted shade trees to beautify and add shade to a popular area of the park. No planting experience is required to volunteer, and the holes for 25-30 gallon trees will already be dug. Groups and young people are welcome.
Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or adult, and two adults are required for every four children who sign up as volunteers.
Volunteers can check in for the event beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the green tent near the hillside playground, which is located at the west end of the park. A safety briefing will take place at 8.55 am. Planting will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Participants are asked to wear appropriate clothing, including long pants, hats, and sunglasses, as well as comfortable closed-toe shoes. If possible, volunteers should bring a water bottle, shovel, gloves, rake and/or hoe.
The tree planting event may be postponed in the event of inclement weather.
