News on the Paradise Revegetation Project:

First, a bit of bad news. The Paradise Planting on Sunday, July 12 and Sunday, July 19 have been canceled due to the low number of people signed up for these days. The Plantings on Saturday, July 11 and Saturday, July 19 are still taking place. We decided it made more sense to cancel the plantings on July 12 and 19 and focus our energy on the remaining dates. We hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone, and we encourage anyone still interested to join the July 11 and July 18 plantings. There is still time!

If you are already planning on attending, here is some important information to remember:

Teams will begin planting around 8:30 - 9:00 AM and continue planting till around 4:00 PM. The schedule is somewhat flexible, but the sooner you arrive the better. You can arrive at 10:00 AM and be fine, but if you arrive at 1:00 PM there might not be anyone to show you how to plant.

You should bring:

  • Raingear

  • Knee Pads

  • Gloves (we have some in Longmire if you don't have your own)

  • Food and Water (very important, especially water)

  • Sunscreen and Sunglasses (as important as water at Paradise)

Tools will be provided on site.

So, in recap, the Paradise Plantings on July 12, 19 has been canceled, but the plantings on July 11, 18 are still happening. The events start at 8:30-9:00 and end at 4:00. You must bring gloves, food, water, but tools will be provided.

Thanks again for signing up, hope to see you there.
