WHAT: Volunteer to plant trees in our neighborhood. The trees are free, but we need to plant them.

WHEN: Saturday November 17, 2012 at 8:45 am to about noon. Rain or shine or snow!

WHERE: Meet at the The Highland Park Club Apartments (1001 N Negley Ave. We will plant 70 trees on N Negley and nearby streets. There will be snacks, coffee and lunch.

WHO: There is something for everyone to do! Children ages 8 and older are encouraged to help along with their parents or a responsible adult. We will have activities for younger children.

TO SIGN UP: go to http://www.paconserve.org/300/form-test and fill out your name and contact information (there are many tree plantings this season, so be sure to sign up for the Highland Park planting).

If you can’t make it and would like to contribute, you can make a tax deductible donation to buy lunch for the volunteers of $5-$25. Make your checks out to Tree Pittsburgh and write “Highland Park” in the memo line on the check. You can email Nancy Levine at nlevinearnold@gmail.com.
