The UofL Sustainability Council invites everyone out to join us at this neighborhood tree planting sponsored by Louisville Grows on the southern edge of our Belknap campus!

We seek your volunteer support to help restore the tree canopy in the Lucky Horseshoe neighborhood just south of campus in the area around Churchill Downs.

Join us to help improve the health of the residents in the Lucky Horseshoe neighborhood through urban forestry, as we plant 33 trees.

Trained Citizen Foresters will lead groups of volunteers to properly plant trees on residential and business properties, and in the right-of-ways along the streets.

No experience is necessary, everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us!

This planting is sponsored by MSD in partnership with Louisville Metro District 15's inaugural Building Our Blocks (BOB) program. Building Our Blocks is an event that seeks to transform a single neighborhood in one day through projects such as tree plantings, home repair, street safety improvements, beautification, and more. The goal is to be proactive in solving issues our community members face daily by bringing city services to their doorstep.

Registration begins at 9:30 am. Planting groups depart at 10:00 am. Snacks, coffee and water will be provided. Dress appropriately for the weather and for getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required. We will plant trees come rain or shine.

Register here.
