Calling all green thumbs and tree-huggers! Join us for a morning of environmental action as we plant trees and revitalize one of Phoenix’s best-known parks. Please wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty and closed-toed shoes. Remember to bring a water bottle and sunscreen!
The minimum age for this project is 8 with an accompanying adult. Volunteers ages 16 and 17 who wish to participate without an accompanying adult must bring a signed Youth Volunteer Waiver. Please download the waiver from the “Youth Volunteer” link on the website’s menu.
By signing up for projects and not attending, you may be depriving someone else of the opportunity to participate and the project of much-needed support.

While walking to the Mayor’s State of the City address a week ago, we came across this just-trimmed — okay, “hacked” — tree, along with many other similarly-trimmed trees up and down the street. Hmmm… if shade, sustainability, and going “green” is a priority for our fair city, shouldn’t trees be given the chance to, well, grow?
