Park Inventory: Pershing Park

June 3 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Free

Inventory Trees in a Hidden Gem of Downtown D.C with Casey Trees! 

Come join Casey Trees as we survey Pershing Park! It’s been over a decade since the health and size of these iconic trees has been assessed. We need your help. Want to put your tree skills to the test?

Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site.  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, 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!

Come Prepared

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.

Getting There

Public transportation is the best option for reaching Pershing Park easily and conveniently. There are a variety of metro stations in proximity, Metro Center and Mc Pherson Square are within a 5-minute walk away. Local buses and the National Mall Circulator Loop bus will also provide easy access in and around the Downtown area.

Metered street parking is limited in the surrounding area.

Where to Meet

We will meet in proximity to the General John. J. Pershing Status and the glass pavillion structure. Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.

Meals

Light refreshments will be provided.
