Help Casey Trees care for vulnerable young trees and give them a leg up in becoming an important part of our growing tree canopy! We will be watering, weeding and mulching. ** IMPORTANT: The Tuesday before this event, we will send a logistics and directions email with detailed information about how to get to the site. You will receive this email ONLY if you are signed-up for this event. ** Requirements Registration: You will be prompted to accept the Volunteer Waiver while you register for this event. Youth Volunteers: Volunteers under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign their consent form and be supervised by an adult at all times.  If you do not have access to a printer, we will have some waivers on hand.
