Tree Planting Day

Join us for a winter morning of free, family fun in the woods

When: February 7, 2015; 8:45 am – 12:00 pm

Where: Philomath High School, 2054 Applegate St, Philomath, OR 97370
Please carpool; forest roads are narrow, and with limited parking. From PHS, we will caravan to the tree planting site in the woods.

What to bring: Rainwear, hat, coat, gloves and boots. Expect cold, rain and mud; terrain is uneven. A shovel to plant trees; not a garden trowel.

What will we do: Once we arrive at the forest site, each child will be shown how to plant a tree and then have the opportunity to plant 10 seedlings. Afterward, join us for hot dogs and hot chocolate and pick up your free t-shirt.

How do I sign up: RSVP the number of youth and adults by January 26th to

Participation is limited to the first 140 youth registrations. Let us know if you RSVP and can’t make it so others on the waiting list can join us.
