Event Details

Join Casey Trees, Rock Creek Conservancy, and the Friends of Peirce Mill as we plant nearly 70 trees in Rock Creek Park! In addition to shade trees near Peirce Mill, trees will be planted to create a demonstration project for educational programs that focus on the role of apple husbandry in American history. On the other side of the street, we will add trees and shrubs to restore a riparian area (the interface between land and the creek) and enhance the wildlife habitat. 


Getting There


Head to the address given (note: this is not a physical address but is designed to be entered into a GPS or search engine) and turn into the parking lot. Registration will be located in Picnic Area 1 on the other side of the lot.

Public Transportation: The Van Ness/UDC Metro Station (Red Line) is a 0.8 mile walk. The closest bus stop serves Metrobus lines H2, L1, and L2 and is a 0.6 mile walk.

Parking: Arrive early is you want a space in the parking lot near the picnic area; otherwise, there is ample street parking in the surrounding neighborhoods. 



  • 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. 



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.
