Park Inventory: Stanton Park
September 19, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDTFree
Come spend an evening at this green intersection in North East as we document the trees in the space!
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 Stanton Park to inventory trees. Put your tree ID to the test and survey species for their health, size and canopy.
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 any CT classes 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.
Stanton Park is located between 4th and 6th Street NE. The closest metro is Union Station and metro buses D6 and X8 stop in proximity.
Where to Meet
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.
