Plant trees in honor Earth Day April 20
Calling all volunteers: Help celebrate Earth Day by planting trees with the Forest Preserve District of Kane County.
Volunteers are needed to help plant trees at Big Rock Forest Preserve at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 20. All are welcome. The forest preserve district hopes to plant hundreds of trees in a few hours, and can use as many helpers as possible. Holes will be pre-dug. Volunteers will simply plant the tree, tamp down dirt, add water and mulch. It's easy.
Be sure to arrive promptly at 10 a.m. Planting will continue until all trees are in the ground or 1 p.m. -- whichever comes first.
Each year, the Forest Preserve District of Kane County conducts plantings as part of an Earth Day celebration. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for individuals or groups, families, scouts, youth groups or other organizations. You're welcome to plant a single tree, or stay and plant as many as you like. Bring work gloves if you prefer.
Groups of 10 or more should contact the volunteer coordinator at (630) 762-2741 or email@example.com to register. Groups of less than 10 do not need to RSVP.
Big Rock Forest Preserve is at 46W072 Jericho Road, Big Rock. For more information, call the Forest Preserve District of Kane County at (630) 232-5980 or visit www.kaneforest.com.
