Veterans Day Tree Planting Tribute

November 11, 2020 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In honor of a veteran, dedicate a tree in their name! With your help, the Preservation Trust will be planting a grove of Garry oak (Quercus garryana) trees at Phelps Preserve on San Juan Island. We will be planting and caging new oaks, as well as re-caging oaks that were planted last year.

These planting parties are scheduled to coincide when school is out of session, so this is a great opportunity for middle school and high school aged youth to gain volunteer hours for the SJI Service Scholarship.

Please sign up for one of the two time slots below (each team is limited to 12 people total). Physical distancing and proper sanitation will be practiced. Please bring a mask and wear it when closer than 6′ from your teammates.

Monday, November 11th 10:00 AM – 1:25 PM – Sign up for Team #1.
Monday, November 11th 1:35 PM – 4:00 PM – Sign up for Team #2.

Details about when and where to meet, pre-registration paperwork, etc., will be emailed to registered participants prior to the event. 

This event is sponsored by One Tree Planted and Promise the Pod.
