Middle Run Tree Planting

Sat, Nov 10, 9am – Noon | Middle Run Natural Area

Directions Map

For over 15 years, we have managed the land at the 860-acre Middle Run Natural Area and have coordinated a major reforestation project at the park since 1991. More than 55,000 trees have been planted, enhancing biodiversity, and improving the quality of the watershed.

But our job isn’t done and we need your help!

Individuals, families, friends, scouts, and other groups interested in helping: bring your muscles and enthusiasm! Come dig holes, plant, cage, and water up to 600 trees!
