Event Details

Help Casey Trees and Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy plant 40 trees in the second phase of the restoration of the historic and beautiful Dumbarton Oaks Park! Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy volunteers have been hard at work removing invasive species, including Norway maple and English ivy. The variety of native tree species we plant will support the continued management of invasive species on this important site.  

Please note, we will be planting on some pretty tough terrain. The slopes that we are planting on can not only be slippery for you but make the planting process more technically challenging. Please be sure that you are up for the challenge when signing up for this planting. 

 

Getting There

From R Street, walk north and downhill on Lover’s Lane (the chained-off park road between Montrose Park and Dumbarton Oaks). At the bottom of the hill you will reach a fork, registration will be at that intersection. Look for the Casey Trees event signs to guide your way. There will be street parking available and several Metrobus lines stop near the entrance to the park.

 

 Requirements

  • All volunteers must sign a completed volunteer waiver form before participating. Children under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign a consent form and be supervised by an adult at all times. Waivers will be provided but to ease the registration process it is helpful to bring a completed copy to the event. 
  • No specific skills required. Each event starts with a tool safety and care demonstration.
  • Register in advance. Space is limited. If your plans change prior to the event, please update your registration status so we are sure to have the necessary number of volunteers.
  • Arrive on time. Check-in opens a half hour prior to the indicated start time and volunteers must be present for the tool safety demonstration at the start of the event.
  • Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Closed toe shoes are required. 

 

Meals

Volunteers are welcomed in the morning with a light breakfast. A celebratory lunch is provided at the conclusion of the event. Casey Trees will supply drinking water throughout the event.
