Tree Survival Study: Georgetown
June 29 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDTFree
Casey Trees is committed to increasing the tree canopy of Washington D.C. How well are we doing? Now is your chance to find out!
Participate in our yearly survival study. We will measure canopy width, trunk diameter, and most importantly, whether the tree is still alive.
Participants will receive a short, hands-on training in the park. After learning the tools and techniques, participants will split up into groups and begin assessing trees throughout Georgetown.
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.
- No specific skills required.
- Register in advance. Space is limited. If your plans change prior to the event, please update your registration status so we are sure to have the necessary number of volunteers.
- Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather.
We will plan to conduct this survival study rain or shine so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and a snack.
We will be meeting at Volta Park which is located one 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 be meeting at Volta Park at the Q Street entrance. Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the study date.
