In partnership with CSX: Beyond Our Rails, Arbor Day Foundation, Alliance for Community Trees, City Year, and Baltimore TreeKeepers the Baltimore Tree Trust (BTT) participated in the "Every Kid Healthy Service Day" event on November 12th 2016. The event was filled with enthusiasm and lots to do! Tasks included beautifying the playground space, enhancing the school's garden, painting indoor and outdoor murals, and PLANTING TREES!
With the help of volunteers, community members, students, and teachers, we planted 52 new trees. Volunteers grabbed their shovels and worked hard digging, staking, mulching and watering the new trees. A lot was accomplished on November 12th and we are happy to have been invited to be part of such a great event. This was a very successful day for the school, community, all partners involved and Baltimore's Urban Canopy.
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this event and for helping us TRANSFORM BALTIMORE WITH TREES!
