Celebrate National Public Lands Day with Casey Trees and the National Environmental Education Foundation

NEEF’s National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands. Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, this celebration brings out thousands of volunteers to help restore and improve public lands around the country. We’re lucky to have a number of public lands right here in the District! This is a great day to give back to the land that has been there for us, especially in the past two years.

Help care for young trees at our NACE National Public Lands Day Community Tree Care: Fort Dupont on Saturday, September 25 as a part of this impactful nationwide day of service. No prior experience is necessary. Your help with weeding, mulching, and watering these vulnerable trees will give them a leg up in becoming an important part of our growing tree canopy.

Register | Free | September 25 | 9 am – 12 pm | Fort Dupont, WDC

You provide the muscle, we provide all the necessary tools and supplies to care for trees. Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on-site. After learning the tools and techniques, participants will split up into groups and begin caring for trees throughout the park.

Register now! The week before this event, we will send a logistics and directions email with detailed information about how to get to the site. You will receive this email ONLY if you are signed up for this event.
