Volunteer tree planting event
Come help TEC plant trees along Lytle Creek.
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.
This event will occur on Saturday, December 16, 2023, beginning at 9:00 am and ending around 12:00 pm.
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.
