This event is open for Citizen Forester Team Leaders and volunteers from OneUmbrella only. If you are interested in becoming a Citizen Forester Team Leader, be on the look out for our Tree Planting Workshop next September, which is the first step in becoming a Team Leader
Team Leaders, join Casey Trees, the National Cherry Blossom Festival and volunteers from OneUmbrella as we add 24 cherry trees to the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home, courtesy of Macy's.
Registration will be located on the grounds. Please enter the facility using the Eagle Gate at 140 Rock Creek Church Road NW. Once on base, follow the Casey Trees event signs to registration. If driving, you are welcome to park in lots 3 and 5. These will be marked. Please do not park in the Lincoln Cottage Lot or the Residents’ Lot.
The Georgia Ave/Petworth Metro Station (Green/Yellow Line) is a 0.8 mile walk away. There are also several Metrobus lines in the area, including the H8, which stops right out front!
Please note that the North Capitol Street entrance is not valid as the gate is not open to the public.
Volunteers will be provided with light refreshments. Casey Trees will supply drinking water throughout the event.
