Tree Planting at the Lane Property

November 9 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

Join PEC for a volunteer tree planting at the Lane Property in Rappahannock County on Wednesday, November 9. Volunteers will be needed for two shifts, one from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and the other from 1:30 – 4 p.m., to help plant 330 native trees and shrubs along a tributary of Kilby’s Creek to enhance water quality and wildlife habitat as part of our Headwater Stream Initiative!

Volunteer activities include tree planting, which involves scalping (removing grass with a hoe), digging holes, planting, and pounding wooden stakes. This is a family-friendly event, and volunteers of all ages are welcome! Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

This event is rain or shine. In the event of dangerous weather, we will reschedule the day’s planting. We will provide all of the necessary tools for planting, extra water, and snacks (no lunch will be provided – please pack your own). Volunteers are encouraged to wear boots or closed-toe shoes and clothing that they’re comfortable getting dirty. Please bring bottled water, sunscreen, and bug spray if needed. The terrain is mostly flat, with a short walk to the planting site. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your shift begins, as we will be conducting a brief training and walking to the site together!

Note: Carpooling is encouraged due to limited parking space
