Native Tree Planting

What: 

Volunteer tree planting event 

Come help TEC plant trees along Lytle Creek.


Where: 

The exact location will be given closer to the date because this is on private property.  Parking will be available in the field/street. Please do not block driveways or intersections.

When: 

This event will occur on Friday, December 15, 2023, beginning at 9:00 am and ending around 12:00 pm.

Why: 

By planting a diverse assortment of native trees, we will expand the vegetative buffer zone along Lytle Creek. Healthy vegetative buffers play an instrumental role in the health of a stream by reducing the amount of sediment and nutrient pollution entering the stream, reducing erosion, decreasing flood water velocity downstream, and creating habitat for a variety of wildlife. This event is in collaboration with Kirchhoff Automotive whose goal is to plant 1785 trees correlating with the year they started. 

What to bring: 

Please be sure to bring a refillable water bottle, a snack/lunch, and a desire to make a positive environmental impact. TEC will provide all necessary tools, sunscreen, and bug spray.
