In general, for "Boots on the Ground" projects, all work equipment such as shovels, tarps, and rakes are supplied for projects requiring them, but you are welcome to bring your own. Always check the Calendar to see if other details apply. Times may vary. See below for the required form you will need to bring.
What to Wear
For all outdoor projects involving weed removal work, restoration, trail-building, and planting, be sure to wear sturdy shoes/boots, work clothing, and gloves. You will get dirty! Depending on the weather, you might need to bring rain gear. Check the Calendar for any further details.

Many of our volunteer events include habitat restoration where trees are planted after invasive weeds are removed. Watch this video of Corey Miller explaining how to properly plant a tree and you'll be prepared to successfully plant a tree. Did you know that planting trees is one of the easiest and cheapest way to mitigate climate change and help the planet?
Planting trees is one of the most effective means of removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (Carbon sequestration).
One tree shading a home in the city will save fossil fuel and cut carbon dioxide reducing the “Greenhouse Effect." A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at 48 lbs/year and release enough oxygen into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings. If every American family planted just one tree, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere would be reduced by one billion lbs. annually.
