Registration is Now Open for Fall Plantings and Events!

It’s that time of year again!

This fall, we hope to plant and inventory more than 1,500 trees across the District — with your help! Take a look at our planting schedule and register for the events that work best for you. Want to take your volunteering to the next level (and be eligible for special, exclusive plantings and inventories)? Our Team Leader Training on September 5 and 8 is for you! We give you all the tools, tips, and tricks on how to best lead our volunteers and you get knowledge, swag, and are welcomed into the next echelon of the Casey Trees family.
