Event Details

Join Casey Trees as we beautify and add some much needed shade trees to the historic Petworth neighborhood. Adding to the trees planted last fall alongside students from nearly E.L. Haynes, this planting will help replace several mature trees along the surrounding streets that were removed due to recent construction.

After we are done planting, head on over to the Petworth Citizen for a Happy Hour just for Petworth volunteers! The Petworth Citizen, who is also generously donating a portion of the celebratory lunch, is located at 829 Upshur Street and is only two blocks from the planting! 


Getting There

Registration will be located at the corner of 7th and Webster St NW. There is plenty of unrestricted street parking in the neighborhood. The Georgia Ave/Petworth Metro Station (Green/Yellow Line) is 0.6 miles away and the 60, 62, 63 and 64 Metrobus lines all stop nearby. 

 

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.
