Druid Hill Park Tree Planting Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
Three schools in Collegetown want more trees and need your help! Parks and People is organizing 150-300 volunteers, partnering with local college students and the city, and are looking forward to a massive planting effort. On a side note, plan to arrive early because the Baltimore Marathon is the same day!


Date: October 11, 2008
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Location: Druid Hill Park.
Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
