ReTree the District
ReTree the District is a community development initiative in Buffalo’s University District that has planted 1,000 trees across the community. The project is reinvesting in our urban tree canopy, strengthening ties among neighbors, restoring our parks and greenspaces, and encouraging hands-on volunteerism.
Join us for our next planting day on November 3rd, 2018!
Please arrive @ Roosevelt Park by 9AM on Saturday, April 14th.
We will be meeting right at the shelter in Roosevelt Park which you can find on this Google Map.
There is limited onsite parking, so we encourage people to carpool. We will have everything on hand for the event (tools, gloves, etc.) We do recommend warm clothes and boots over sneakers.
Groups will be registered and sent to planting locations in Roosevelt Park or on Roosevelt Avenue with a team leader trained in the bareroot method of tree planting.
*Refreshments will be provided in the morning .
RETREE BY THE NUMBERS
7,300 Volunteer Hours
*Based on value of volunteer time and material costs (trees).
