Park Inventory: Volta Park
June 9 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-4Free
Come enjoy a green oasis in the heart of Georgetown with Casey Trees!
Want to explore a new green space? Put your tree species knowledge to the test? Join Casey Trees at Volta Park to inventory trees! These trees have never been surveyed for their health, size or species 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 all ages of the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us! If you’re old enough to hold a tool, well put you to work (children above the age of 4 will do best)! 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. You could also bring swimwear to take advantage of the Volta Park Pool afterward! There is also a popular area in the park for dogs.
The park is located a block off Wisconsin Avenue, we encourage public transportation or biking to get to Volta. The closest metro station is Rosslyn and/or Dupont. The Metrobus lines D2 and D6 stop on Q St just adjacent to the park.
Where to Meet
We will meet near the basketball courts by the Q St. entrance. 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.
