Tree planting with DC Sierra Club

Tree Planting at the Armed Forces Retirement Home - 11/16/2013

Registration needed but right now there is no spot left for registering. You can join wait list if you cannot register. If someone cancels their registration I will let you know.

DC Sierra Club is partnering with our friends at Casey Trees to plant 50 trees around the Armed Forces Retirement Home. We will plant several ornamental trees of Korean origin along a new trail to honor veterans of the Korean War. We will also plant native shade trees around the grounds.

Casey Trees is a local group working to restore, enhance, and protect DC's tree canopy. This is very much in line with our own values and goals. Join us on November 16, 2013!

Armed Forces Retirement Home. 199 Rock Creek Church Rd, NW.
When: 11/16/13, 9am-12pm.
What to bring/wear: Closed toe shoes. Work gloves, tools, water provided.

RSVP: Sign up here:

Make sure you sign up under the "DC Sierra Club" section.

Notes: Breakfast and a celebratory lunch will be provided by Casey Trees.

Please let me know once you have registered and I will add you to the Yes rsvp list.
