Woodland Restoration Project & Arbor Day Celebration
April 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
In an effort to revitalize the woodlands and kick-start a maintenance program, Meadow Brook Hall is launching the Woodland Entrance Restoration Program on Arbor Day, April 28, 2017 as a community work day and tree planting celebration.
Helping us facilitate the program is ReLeaf Michigan, a statewide volunteer non-profit tree planting organization whose mission is to educate the public on the value of trees and how to properly select, plant and maintain them.
Even if you can’t come plant trees on April 28, you can still have a positive impact. ReLeaf will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $1,000 towards this project. To donate, click here.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Sign-up as a “work” volunteer
- Bring your own tools or donate funds to purchase tools such as loppers, pruners, shovels and rakes
- Bring beverages/snacks for volunteers
1 pm – Garden Tent – Volunteer check-in and brief orientation by ReLeaf Michigan
1:30 – 3:30 pm – Woodlands clean-up and planting
4 pm – Arbor Day celebration with Mayor Barnett/City of Rochester Hills, official tree planting ceremony
