Event description

Description

Help Casey Trees care for vulnerable young trees and give them a leg up in becoming an important part of our growing tree canopy! We will be watering, weeding and mulching.


** IMPORTANT: The Tuesday before this event, we will send a logistics and directions email with detailed information about how to get to the site. You will receive this email ONLY if you are signed-up for this event. **
