Trees, Lady Bugs, and Fun Activities Kept Volunteers Engaged

A total of 177 volunteers, between the ages of three and 68, helped with Earth Arbor Day on April 16-17. Girl Scout troops, school groups, and families planted trees throughout Central Park, while other volunteers helped with activity booths such as solar cooking, giving out lady bags and mulch, tagging give-away trees and bags, re-purposing old Earth Arbor Day shirts, and assisted with arts and craft projects. Volunteer Engagement staff received positive comments about the volunteers from other City staff and Festival attendees.
