Help Casey Trees and Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy plant trees in the historic Dumbarton Oaks Park. The native tree species we plant will support the continued management of invasive plants onsite.
Registration: To ease the registration process, please bring a completed volunteer waiver form with you to the planting. If you do not have access to a printer, we will have some waivers on hand.
Youth Volunteers: Volunteers under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign their consent form and be supervised by an adult at all times.
No specific skills required. Each event starts with a tool safety and planting demonstration. Volunteers plant alongside experienced Citizen Foresters and staff.
Arrive on time. Check-in opens a half hour prior to the indicated start time.
Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Closed toe shoes and long pants are required. Boots are preferred over sneakers.
Animals: No animals are allowed into the event, except for service animals.
If you represent a group (5+ people), complete the Group Volunteer Information Form and we will contact you to discuss potential volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers are welcomed in the morning with light breakfast fare and treated to a celebratory lunch at the conclusion of the event. Indicate dietary restrictions during the online registration process. Drinking water is available throughout the event.
Public Transportation: The Dupont Circle Metro stop is about 1 mile from our meeting location. The G2 bus line drops off at P and 31st, about 0.4 miles from the outside of the entrance to the conservancy.
Parking: There is limited street parking on R Street NW. Carpooling or public transportation is highly encouraged.
