Climate Action Now! Group tree planting

Tree held in a hand

Join Forest ReLeaf and Great Rivers Greenway, along with fellow members of the CAN! team, for a tree planting event on Saturday, November 12 from 9:00 AM to Noon at North Riverfront Park. This activity is suitable for adults and for children ages 12 and older.  All members and friends of the Ethical Society are welcome to participate.  If you can’t dig or lift, you can help with the watering of the newly planted trees.

Register here with Forest ReLeaf and then email the CAN! team organizers to let us know you’ll be joining us.  The location is a less than 25-minute drive from the Ethical Society.  We can arrange to carpool together, if desired.

About this event

Help plant 100 trees as we celebrate the Mississippi Greenway and all it has to offer. Helping hands of all ages are welcome!

WHERE: North Riverfront Park- South Entrance

WHEN: Saturday morning from 9:00am to 12:00pm

WHAT TO WEAR/BRING: Volunteers are asked to bring a water bottle and wear long sleeve shirts, long pants, and closed toed shoes that are appropriate for digging. Keep in mind you will get dirty! All tools (shovels and pick axes) needed to plant trees, gloves and snacks will be provided.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Tree planting events are held rain or shine. Upon checking in at the volunteer table, you will be asked to sign a liability waiver. You will then be assigned to a planting zone. Following opening remarks, we will provide training on how to properly plant and care for trees. Volunteers will be with your group throughout the event to guide you on which trees to plant in which locations. Expect to dig, mulch, and get your hands dirty!
