Park Inventory: Kenilworth-Parkside
September 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDTFree
Inventory Trees in the expansive Kenilworth-Parkside Recreation Area with Casey Trees!
Want to put your tree skills to the test before winter sets in? Join Casey Trees as we survey Kenilworth-Parkside. Many of 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. Although, if you’ve 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 distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and a snack. Frisbees, soccer balls and other outdoor recreation funsies are also encouraged due to the expanisve recreational space!
Public transportation is the best option for reaching Kenilworth-Parkside easily and conveniently. There are a variety of bus stations and a metro station in proximity. Local buses (U7, R12, V14, W4) bus will also provide easy access in and around the area. Deanwood Metro Station is within a 10-minute walk away.
Parking is available in the surrounding area.
Where to Meet
We will meet outside the Recreation Center on the Ord St NE side, be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date with exact registration location.
Light refreshments will be provided.
