California Tree Planting

Saturday, April 4th 8AM-4PM. Registration opens at 8AM, and planting starts at 9AM.

Please join Louisville Grows with our California neighbors as we dig toward our goal of planting 1000 trees this season! California needs your help! It has one of the lowest and most rapidly decreasing tree canopies in Louisville, sitting at 13%. We need 200+ volunteers on the day of the planting. No experience is necessary; everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us. Our Citizen Foresters will be there to lead you in becoming a proper tree planter!

Meeting Location: California Community Center

Other volunteer opportunities include registration, breakfast, and lunch volunteers.

A light breakfast and full lunch will be provided to all volunteers. Louisville Grows will provide gloves and water bottles. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Waterproof outerwear is recommended if rain is forecasted. You'll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required.

Due to weather and volunteer turnout, we cannot guarantee that the event will end at 4:00PM exactly. 

A greener community is a healthier community
