Tree Planting at Richland Swim Club — CANCELED
Saturday, May 9, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Volunteer with TreePittsburgh for a tree planting on May 9th! This planting will use 1–2 gallon containerized trees and shrubs grown at the Tree Pittsburgh Heritage Nursery to restore a wetland area along the West Branch of Deer Creek near the Richland Swim Club. In an area currently overrun with the invasive narrow leaved cattail, this project will help replace this invasive monoculture with a diverse forested wetland habitat to improve downstream water quality and create high quality habitat for local wildlife. This project is made possible with funds from DCNR’s Riparian Forest Buffer Program Volunteers are asked to bring a reusable water bottle, and to wear long pants they don’t mind getting dirty, boots or closed-toed shoes, and to dress for the weather. Tree Pittsburgh will provide all tools, supplies and safety gear needed for the project. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian with them at sign-in. Any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (412) 781-TREE (8733).
