Friends of the Parks of Allen County invites citizens to partner with area parks departments, businesses, neighborhoods and community volunteers to plant new trees in our parks and public spaces during the 16th annual Great Tree Canopy Comeback which is schedule for Saturday, October 21, 2017.
Volunteers of all ages are critical to the success of the event and are encouraged to sign up and help restore the tree canopy. More than 200 trees will be planted in the following parks this year: Memorial Park, WaynedalePark, BucknerPark, PaytonCountyPark, WaynedaleGardens and WerlingPark.
T-shirts will be handed out to volunteers who pre-register while supply lasts.
Also, volunteers who would like to plant a tree in their own yards can request a free tree from Trees Indiana when they register.
Bring gloves, shovels, rakes and a wheelbarrow (if you have one). Dress for the weather. Trees will be planted, rain or shine.
