Thanks to great planning, perfect spring weather and a superb site on Ten Mile Creek, the planting event on April 20th was a great success! We had almost 200 volunteers out to plant more than 500 trees & shrubs.

As a co-sponsor, we had our TCWP information display set up for the day, and greeted each arriving group of volunteers with a brief introduction about our organization and what we do. The display enabled further conversations throughout the morning.
It was a great day!IMG_20190420_111438128
