Celebrate Earth Day by helping plant native Ohio trees in an area of the forest where volunteers have been removing invasive plant species. We will be planting native trees to help the forest recover to a healthy ecosystem. Trees have been selected to help pollinators or birds. Trees have been donated by Green Columbus as part of their Earth Day celebration. Please bring a shovel, work gloves and water bottle. We will be planting off-trail, please be sure to treat your clothing with tick repellant.. Expect to be get dirty and wear shoes with good traction. Take home a free native Ohio tree after the program. Ages 6+.
