Organizers of the Great Tree Canopy Comeback are looking for volunteers to plant trees Nov. 6.
More than 200 trees will be planted in about an hour by community volunteers in Fort Wayne, New Haven and Allen County.
The planting begins at 10 a.m., regardless of the weather.
Holes will already be dug, but volunteers should bring their own shovels for planting. Oh, and don’t forget gloves.
Volunteers are also encouraged to bring a bag lunch and hang out after the planting is done.
So they know how many people are coming, organizers would like you to sign up in advance. Information and a registration form (PDF) are available online at www.fortwayneparks.org (download and mail in) or call 422-3232
Planting will be done Buckner Park, Foster Park, McMillen Golf Course and along Reynolds Street in Fort Wayne; Havenhurst Park in New Haven; and Fox Island Park, Allen County Parks Department.
The planting push is put together by volunteers for Friends of the Parks with area parks departments: Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation Department, New Haven/Adams Township Parks and Recreation Department and the Allen County Parks Department.
