Presidents Weekend Tree Planting at TN School for the Blind


Join the Nashville Tree Foundation for a family friendly, tree planting event. Trees provide shade, help to filter air pollution, create an oxygen rich environment, and reduce flooding by absorbing great amounts of ground water. Learn how to plant and care for trees, while also joining forces to make Nashville a greener community! 

IMPORTANT VOLUNTEER INFORMATION
This is a rain or shine event, however, in the event of extreme bad weather, the planting will take place Sunday, February 16.  Please plan to be there in the event that the planting gets delayed to Sunday - we need your help! 
 
Presidents Weekend Tree Planting will take place at 2 locations in Donelson, both on February 15. Each location has a separate registration page. 
 
This registration page is for planting trees at the Tennessee School for the Blind. 

Volunteers should report directly to the school and check-in with the Green Shirt Volunteer leaders who will be at the site.
 
After check-in, you will view a tree planting demonstration before being grouped into teams and assigned trees to plant.
 
  • Volunteer assignments are outside, so dress accordingly.
  • Closed toe shoes are required - work boots are recommended.
  • Heavy lifting may be required.
  • Gloves will be provided.
  • Bring your own drinking water.
