Join The Piedmont Environmental Council, Friends of the Rappahannock, Goose Creek Association, John Marshall Soil & Water Conservation District and We Plant Trees for a volunteer tree planting at Sky Meadows State Park on Friday, October 29 – Saturday, October 30! Volunteers will be needed in two shifts, from 9 am-noon and 1-3 pm, for planting 1,060 native tree tubelings (scalping, 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.

Online registration through LetsVolunteer.org is encouraged so we can plan effectively for the day’s event.

Volunteer Shifts

  • Fri Oct 29, 2021 @ 9:00am to 12:00pm
  • Fri Oct 29, 2021 @ 1:00pm to 3:00pm

We will provide all of the necessary tools for planting, extra water, and snacks (lunch will not be provided). Volunteers are encouraged to wear boots or closed-toe shoes and clothing that they’re comfortable getting dirty and bring bottled water. The terrain will be relatively flat, and volunteers will need to maneuver through one fence.

In addition to planting tools, snacks, and water, volunteers will also receive free entry into the park for the day.
