Join us for an Earth Day tree planting in the Warrenton area on April 22! Volunteers will be needed from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm for planting native tree seedlings (scalping, digging holes, planting, and pounding stakes).

Planting native trees helps our environment and our community and can:

  • Sequester carbon to improve air quality;
  • Regulate temperatures in our urban environments;
  • Increase property values in our neighborhoods;
  • Catch and filter polluted stormwater before it enters our local streams;
  • Stabilize soils and stream banks preventing erosion;
  • Provide valuable forage and habitat for fish and wildlife.

All COVID guidelines shall be adhered to – volunteers must bring their own mask and observe social distancing.
