Tree Planting Project: Downtown

September 28, 2019 , 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Join FGRP and other community members to plant trees in the downtown Grand Rapids area!

***We’ll meet at 18 Barnett St. NW (Barnett is one block south of Leonard, between Taylor and Ionia).

As part of the Urban Forest Project, we’re on a mission to plant 225 trees throughout the city this fall. We’ll be focusing on projects in the downtown and Uptown areas, as well as at city schools.

This project:

  • is kid-friendly
  • is flexible! Leave a little early if you need (football, anyone?!)
  • requires no previous experience
  • is open to all members of the GR community
  • fulfills the hands-on planting requirement for our Neighborhood Forester certification

Sign up to volunteer on Eventbrite here. ***If you would like to create a private pruning or planting event for your corporate group, please contact us!***

The Urban Forest Project was launched in 2011 by Friends of Grand Rapids Parks, the City of Grand Rapids, and the Grand Rapids Community Foundation, to work toward the Green Grand Rapids 40% tree canopy goal. Every tree planted and cared for helps to create greener neighborhoods, intercept stormwater, conserve energy, remove air pollutants, and reduce and store CO2.
