US Route 40 Mulch Fest
Thursday, July 1 • 11:00 am • 3:00 pm
Help us care for one of our largest tree planting sites along the median of US Route 40!
Blue Water Baltimore has been working for years with West Baltimore communities to re-forest the “Highway to Nowhere” and provide much-needed air quality and stormwater control in the paved area of Route 40.
Together we will mulch as many trees as possible – and there are almost 500 total! A new layer of mulch helps suppress weeds, retain moisture, and moderate soil temperature to prepare these young trees for the hot summer months ahead. For more information on the many benefits of mulch, check out our blog.
- Volunteers of all experience levels are welcome.
- Bring your own water bottle to reduce waste.
- We’ll provide the gloves, tools and training!
Parking will be located at the West Baltimore Marc Station Park n’ Ride. Look for the Blue Water Baltimore arrow signs.
