Tree Planting: GRPS University

October 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

What: We are so excited to be partnering with our friends at Grand Rapids Public Schools for a series of tree plantings with elementary school children at schools here in Grand Rapids to contribute to our tree canopy for the benefit of future generations.

Where: GRPS University, 1400 Fuller Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49505

When: Wednesday, October 17, 9 am – 1 pm

Who: Anyone and everyone! Come help us assist Grand Rapids Public School students in learning how to plant trees and planting for our future. This planting will also count towards your Citizen 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!
