GWU Campus Tree Inventory
April 29, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-4
Celebrate Earth Month with Casey Trees
Casey Trees’ mission is to restore, enhance and protect the tree canopy of DC. In order to better manage this incredible natural resource we need more information about what kinds of trees are on your campus, how big they are, and where they’re located.
That’s where you come in!
We need your help measuring the trees on GW’s campus.
Participants will receive a short, hands-on training in the park. After learning the tools and techniques, participants will split up into groups and begin measuring trees. We will be documenting tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown and more.
Casey Trees will then add the information you’ve collected to our database and begin analyzing it so we can better manage your campus’ current trees and plan for a more sustainable canopy in the future.
Who Should Attend?
Open to all GW students, and you do not need any prior experience to join us. If you’re interested in sustainability or want to get hands-on experience working with a local environmental non-profit, this is a great opportunity!
We will plan to conduct the inventory rain or shine so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are encouraged to bring water and a snack.
Where to Meet
Meet in the center of Anniversary Park on F St between 21st and 22nd st NW.
