The City of Lakes Loppet Tree Planting Party
Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 8:30 AM (CDT)
Golden Valley, MN
Help us plant trees for the Loppet! The City of Lakes Loppet is looking for volunteers to help plant native trees along event trails in Theodore Wirth Park. Bachman's has donated 75 trees that will help beautify the park and provide a buckthorn-free understory to the park’s landscape. The trees will also help create needed shade over active trails and provide natural barriers for trails no longer in use.
Not sure how to plant trees? No problem! Bachman’s landscape experts will provide a brief training at 8 a.m. Tree planting begins at 9 a.m. and will likely last all morning. Volunteers are welcome to stay as long as they can to help us plant all of the trees. Please bring your own gloves and shovels, if possible. Please RSVP if you plan to attend so we can make sure we collect the correct number of volunteers.
