Park Inventory: Southwest Waterfront Park
July 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-4Free
Inventory Trees Along the Waterfront with Casey Trees!
Come join Casey Trees as we survey the Southwest Waterfront 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!
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.
Public transportation is the best option for reaching Southwest Waterfront Park easily and conveniently. The Waterfront-SEU metro station is a 10-minute walk away. The local buses (74, A9, W9, D300 etc.) will also provide easy access in and around the area.
Metered street parking is limited in the surrounding area.
Where to Meet
We will meet in proximity to the Water St. SW roundabout. 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.
