Join Casey Trees on their last inventory of the season! 

Come join Casey Trees on their last inventory of the season in the beautiful Lederer Gardens and Environmental Education Center. Many of these trees have never been surveyed before and we need your help. Want to put your tree skills to the test before fall sets in?

Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site.  After learning the tools and techniques participants will split up into groups and begin measuring trees. We will be documenting tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown and more.


Who Should Attend?

Open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us.  Although, if you’ve participated in our Trees 101 or Trees 201 class, this will be a great way to put your knowledge into action!

Come Prepared

We will plan to conduct the inventory rain or shine so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and a snack.

Getting There

Public transportation is a great option for reaching Lederer Garden and Environmental Education Center easily and conveniently. The Minnesota Ave metro station is a 20-minute walk away. Local buses (V2, V4, X9) also provide easy access running along Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave NE. Coming from across town? We suggest proposing a car-pool with fellow volunteers as street parking will be available in the surrounding area.

Where to Meet

We will set up front of Lederer Garden. Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.

Meals

Light refreshments will be provided.
