US Route 40 Tree Care: POSTPONED
Tuesday, March 3 • 8:00 am • 5:00 pm
Join Blue Water Baltimore as we care for one of our largest tree planting sites!
Over the past 3 years, our staff and dedicated volunteers have planted almost 500 trees along the median of US Route 40 in west Baltimore. If we care for our trees now, they will care for us down the road! A nice new layer of mulch will suppress weeds, retain moisture, and moderate soil temperature to prepare them for the hot summer months ahead. Regular tree maintenance helps our canopy grow, which in turn cools and cleans our air, absorbs stormwater, increases wildlife habitat, and beautifies our neighborhoods!
Volunteers of all experience levels are welcome.
Bring your own water bottle to reduce waste.
We’ll provide the gloves, tools and training!
Please note – there is a mile long walk to the actual planting site. Vehicle transfer is available if you are unable to walk the mile trek. Parking will be located at the Park’n’Ride at the West Baltimore Marc Station. Look for the Blue Water Baltimore arrow signs.Sign Up Here
