National Public Lands Day plantings [email registration required]

May 25, 2021 by

October 2, 2021 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Rain date Sunday, October 3. Meeting location TBD.

Registration by email is required. Please RSVP to FriendsoftheGlen [at] gmail [dot] com. Covid protocols will be followed.  

SAVE THE DATE!: For National Public Lands Day, Friends of Glen Providence Park will again plant native trees and shrubs in the glen. This is our 1oth year of planting projects, working to improve wildlife habitat, reduce erosion, and beautify the park! 

Our planting day is one of our most popular and fun events! We are incredibly grateful to Delaware County Parks & Recreation for providing funds for this project, and to the Delaware County Conservation District for the use of its Conservation Planting Trailer and supplies.


Volunteering details:

We will update this description as we identify other relevant details for volunteers. 

Estimated time: 9:00am-12:00pm

Activities will include:

  • digging holes for the trees and shrubs
  • spreading woodchips
  • installing deer protection around trees and shrubs
  • watering
  • Of course, we also welcome anyone who wants to participate by picking up trash along the trails and stream!

More logistics:

  • We will provide the equipment, including shovels, spades, rakes, and wheelbarrows – but if you have favorite tools, feel free to bring them!
  • Bring work gloves if you have them.

Rain plan:
Our rain date is Sunday, October 3 at 9:00 am. If the weather is not clear, we will email registered volunteers by 8:30 am Saturday advising whether we will use the rain date.

Thank you, we hope to see you on National Public Lands Day!
