Vancouver to host free tree planting workshop
Friday, October 28, 2011
A free workshop Saturday will give participants tips on how to plant a tree properly.
Staff from the city of Vancouver’s Urban Forestry program will give demonstrations and answer questions. They’ll also offer a hands-on activity for attendees to help plant 38 trees and more than 200 shrubs in the Fisher’s Landing area.
The workshop is part of TreeTalk, a series of tree-related events sponsored by Urban Forestry. Tools and gloves will be provided for Saturday’s activities.
The workshop is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon. Participants will gather in the Fisher’s Landing neighborhood at 18901 S.E. 41st Drive.
Space is limited. People can register by calling 360-487-8308, or contacting Urban Forestry at email@example.com.
