Park Inventory: Marion Park
May 23, 2018 @ 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm UTC-4Free
Come spend an evening with Casey Trees!
Cooped up in an office all day? Want to take in some fresh air while you finesse your tree species knowledge? Join Casey Trees at Marion Park to inventory trees in South-East. These trees have never been surveyed for their health, size or species. Their management is in our hands 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.
Eastern Market Metro Station on the Blue/Orange/Silver line exits in Market Park. Metrobus lines 30N, 30S, 32, 34, 36 and 39 all stop on Pennsylvania Ave in the middle of Market Park.
Where to Meet
We will meet at Marion Park between 4th St & 6th St SE on E St SE. Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table at the corner of South Carolina and Ave and 6th St SE. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.
Light refreshments will be provided.
