Downtown Grand Rapids Tree Planting at Front Ave and Butterworth Ave SW

June 1 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

What: We are so excited to be partnering with our friends at Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. for a series of tree plantings this Spring to help green up the downtown Grand Rapids area.

Where and When: Saturday, June 1st, 2019, 9:30-11:30 AM at 120 Front Ave SW, street parking is available.

Who: Anyone and everyone! Come and join even if you have no experience! If you live in, work in, or just love the downtown area, we would love to help teach you how to plant trees. This planting also counts towards your Neighborhood Forester certification.

No planting experience necessary, we will teach you everything you need to know and provide all the tools. Come with closed toed shoes, a water bottle, and be ready to get dirty.

Why: Because trees are an integral part of our health and the health of our beautiful City of Grand Rapids. Each tree planted helps us to reach the city master plan goal of 40% canopy cover!
