Park Inventory: Banneker Recreation Center
July 14 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-4Free
Come enjoy the great outdoors with Casey Trees!
Want to put your tree species identification to the test? Join Casey Trees at Banneker Recreation Center to observe and inventory trees. These trees have never been surveyed for their health, size or species and we need your help!
Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site. After learning the tools and techniques participants will split into groups and begin measuring trees. We will be documenting tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown, overall health and more.
Who Should Attend?
Open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us. If you have participated in our Trees 101 or Trees 201 class, this will be a great way to put your knowledge into action!
We will plan to conduct the inventory rain or shine so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and a snack. You may also bring swimwear, towel and other swimming supplies if you wish to go swimming in the pool afterwards.
We encourage public transportation or biking to get to Banneker Recreation Center.
Shaw-Howard Univ. Metro Station on the Green/Yellow lines is about seven blocks to the South on Georgia Ave.
Metrobus lines 70 and 79 stop right in front of the recreation center
Where to Meet
We will meet in front of the recreation center off Georgia Ave. Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.
Light refreshments will be provided.
