The UofL Sustainability Council and Student Sustainability Coalition invite anyone staying in Louisville over Spring Break (or those not heading out until after Saturday afternoon) to join us at this neighborhood tree planting sponsored by Louisville Grows! If you’d like to hang out with your UofL Sustainability pals, please request to be grouped with the UofL Student Sustainability Coalition in your comment when you register to volunteer here. If you live on campus, let’s ride together to reduce emissions! Savannah Dowell has 4 open seats in her car, so just text her at (270) 315-7884.

We seek your volunteer support to help restore the tree canopy in the Parkland and California neighborhoods in the heart of the West End. We will be planting 132 trees at homes and businesses that have requested trees.

The Parkland neighborhood began in 1871 as a rural community and in 1894, the City of Louisville annexed the area. The streets of Parkland are lined with nineteenth-century homes, shotgun houses, bungalows, and commercial buildings displaying beautiful examples of architecture. Parkland is home to a section known as Little Africa, the childhood home of Muhammad Ali, the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, and Reynolds Metals, the world's third-largest aluminum and packaging company.

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!

Snacks, coffee and water will be provided. 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.
