Park Inventory: Marie Reed Recreation Center
May 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDTFree
Cooped up in an office all day? Want to take in some fresh air while you finesse your tree species knowledge? Come spend an evening outside, cataloging tree and taking in this newly renovated recreation center.
Join Casey Trees at Marie Reed Rec Center to inventory trees. We will be surveying for health, size, and species. 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 document tree species, height, trunk diameter, crown width, 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, shine or with frosty temperatures so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and light snacks.
The Rec Center is equidistant from the U Street Metro (Green/Yellow Line) and the Dupont Circle Metro (Red Line). There are also several bus lines that service this area. Street parking is available but extremely limited.
Where to Meet
Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table just off 18th St NW, near the entrance to the Recreation Center. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.
