Volunteer: Suitland Parkway Community Tree Planting

May 5, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-4


You would pass this location while traveling on Suitland Parkway without noticing it, until now! We will be planting trees to create a vegetated buffer along the parkway.

** IMPORTANT: The Tuesday before this planting, we will send a logistics and directions email with detailed information about how to get to the site. You will receive this email ONLY if you are signed-up for this planting. **


All volunteers must sign a completed Volunteer Waiver Form before participating. Please bring a completed waiver to the event to expedite the registration process. Waivers will be available onsite in the event you forget.  

Youth under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign a Parental Consent Form and be supervised by an adult at all times.   

Advance registration is required; space is limited. If your plans change prior to the event, please update your registration status so we can secure the necessary number of volunteers.  

Be present for and actively listening to the tool safety demonstration at the start of the event. Registration opens a half hour before the indicated start time.  

Dress comfortably and appropriate for the weather. Closed-toe shoes are required.
