This is a volunteer event made possible by Clean Currents and the Tower Companies at the Blair Apartments in Silver Spring.

Getting There

The Metrobus stop for this location is East West Hwy & @1237 (28). The Silver Spring Metro Station is a .2 mile walk to the site.  You will see the Casey Trees tent in the Southeast corner of the Giant parking lot. Parking will be available.

Requirements

  • All volunteers must sign a completed volunteer waiver form on the day of the event before participating. Children under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign their waiver and be supervised by an adult at all times. We will ask you for personal, emergency contact, and health information during the registration process.
  • No specific skills required. Each event starts with a tool safety and planting demonstration. Volunteers plant alongside experienced Citizen Foresters and staff.
  • 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.

Meals

Volunteers are welcomed in the morning with hot coffee, tea, water and bagels. A celebratory lunch is provided at the conclusion of the event. Please note your dietary preferences and/or allergies when registering so we can attempt to accommodate your needs.
