Help plant at Paradise on July 11, 12, 18 and 19th

You know that song that goes "they paved paradise, they put up a parking lot". Well, luckily they tore down the parking lot, but now we need your help on the revegetation.

We need volunteers to help plant around 56,000 plants where the old Paradise visitors center used to be. This is a big project, and we're going to need a lot of help. We are looking for both groups and single volunteers. The planting is taking place over four dates, July 11 and 12, and July 18 and 19. Gloves are available, however, due to limited supplies we encourage you to bring you own. Knee pads are not available, but with the amount of time you will spend on your knees planting we encourage you to bring some.

I can't stress the importance of this event enough, 56,000 plants over four days is going to be tough, but with enough help, it is completely doable. So start getting your groups together now, because July will be here before we know it.

To sign up for this event, simply use these links for the days you would like to work and follow the instructions.

More information will be posted on the blog as it becomes available.
