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 50 deciduous shade street trees (2" dbh) with our neighbors at various locations between the curb and the sidewalk where trees are missing between Cardinal Blvd. and Hill St. along 3rd, 4th, Lee, and Bloom Streets.
Volunteers should gather outside the 3rd Avenue Baptist Church (at 3rd & Bloom St.) to be assigned to small tree-planting teams.
Donuts, coffee, hot chocolate and light breakfast items will be available prior to 9am, when work will begin. A pizza & chili lunch will be served for all volunteers at noon after the trees are planted.
All are welcome and no pre-registration is necessary. Tools will be provided, but volunteers may also bring their own shovels and gloves.
Sponsors include the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council, Councilman David James, MSD, Metro Parks Forestry, Metro Public Works, Neon Pizza, and Heine Bros Coffee.
In the event of rain, snow, or frozen ground, the alternate tree planting day will be Saturday, March 12th.
Questions should be directed to Herb Fink 502-552-0399.
