Volunteer: Tregaron Conservancy Community Tree Planting

December 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

The historic Tregaron estate in Northwest D.C. lies between Cleveland Park and Woodley Park. Neglected for decades, the property has seen an incredible resurgence in recent years thanks to the work of the Tregaron Conservancy which has worked to restore and protect this historic landmark.


** 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. **
