The Old Louisville Neighborhood Council and the UofL Sustainability Council invite volunteers to help restore the urban canopy on the northern edge of UofL's Belknap Campus.
We'll be planting 36 deciduous shade street trees (2" dbh) with our neighbors at various locations between the curb and the sidewalk where trees are missing.
The focus areas for this final spring planting will be:
• St. Catherine Street (800 Block)
• West Magnolia Ave. (200 Block), including Brook and Floyd Streets
• 3rd and Lee Street Area
• West Lee Street (400 Block)
• Central Park
Volunteers should gather outside the Information Center in the middle of Central Park to be assigned to small tree-planting teams.
Donuts and coffee will be available 8:30-9am, when work will begin. A pizza and chili lunch will be served for all volunteers at noon after the trees are planted.
Co-sponsors include Metro Council President David James, MSD, Metro Division of Community Forestry, and Metro Public Works.
All are welcome and no pre-registration is necessary.
Tools will be provided, but volunteers may also bring their own shovels and gloves.
