Save the date for our Summer Volunteer Opportunity in the Poncey-Highland Area. More details coming!
What: Trees Atlanta https://treesatlanta.org/
Date: Saturday, June 2, 2018
Where: Poncey-Highland Area – Address TBD
Number of Participants: 20 people max
We will be mulching and watering trees from 9 am to 12 pm. It is important to arrive on time as we only provide one demonstration (it takes 10 minutes) and every volunteer needs to see it. We also want all volunteers to stay for the entire project, and not leave before we finish.
This project is best for ages 12 and up. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian, and all volunteers between the ages of 16 and 17 who are not accompanied by a parent/guardian must have a parent/guardian sign a waiver for them (attached)
Please ask your volunteers to wear closed-toed shoes or boots (waterproof is best), long pants such as jeans (no leggings or athletic wear), sunscreen and bug spray as needed.
They recommend that volunteers bring drinking water in a reusable container. No one-time-use plastic bottles, please.
Tree maintenance is hard work, so make sure to tell everyone to eat a good breakfast and come prepared to work hard. A snack might be a good thing for those who tend to lose steam.
Projects happen rain or shine, so please check the weather beforehand and come prepared.
Trees Atlanta will provide all necessary tools and instruction, though volunteers may prefer to bring their own work gloves.
