It is the mission of Trees for Oakland to contribute to the urban forest in all of Oakland by planting and maintaining trees in the city, with emphasis on areas with limited canopy. An Oakland that is lusher, and more beautiful, with better air quality will lead to the improved well-being of people who live, work, and visit the city. Save the Trees hosts events in a different Oakland City Park on the third Sunday of each month with a priority for parks in low-income communities.
On May 21st we will care for newly-planted trees at Arroyo Viejo Park. Please meet at the recreation entrance 7701 Krause Avenue in Oakland. The workday will be from 9:45 am to 12:30 pm. Children of all ages are welcome; waiver forms will be provided at the site.
Please bring work gloves, water, and a light lunch if you can stay after the event.
