We have always, and will always, err on the side of caution to ensure your safety and this is no exception. In regards to the rest of our events, we are closely monitoring the local and national responses to COVID-19. Because news about the virus changes rapidly, we will reassess our status and confirm or adjust the dates for the rest of our community events.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience. We will continue to email our volunteers and will update our website with information as it becomes available regarding our other upcoming volunteer events.
If you decide not to participate this season, again, we completely understand. If you do cancel for a future event, please let us know as soon as possible either on Eventbrite, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, so we will know how many people to expect.
Thank you once again for your incredible commitment to Casey Trees and our mission. We’ll continue to keep you updated with the latest information as it comes in.
