Whoa, We’re Halfway There – Spring Planting Season Update

It feels like Opening Day was yesterday, but believe it or not, we’re just about halfway through our spring planting season! Let’s take stock of all the work we’ve accomplished this somewhat bizarre spring.

More than 528 adult volunteers have already helped us plant 444 trees in eight locations and eight schools across the District through our Tree Planting programs. Check out our Flickr account for photos from this season’s plantings.

There is no rest for the weary though as we still have eight more planting sites across D.C. to go! We’re ending the season with a bang: two planting the same day! We’ll be planting at Francis Field and Dog Park in Northwest D.C. and Common Greens/Amidon Field in Southwest D.C. on May 13.

Bummed that these are full? Check out our classes and inventories throughout the summer!
