Volunteer – Tree Planting
Saunders Woods Preserve | Thu, May 09, 2019, 9:30am - 12:00pm
(Event was formerly “Vines & Trails,” but we’re planting trees instead!)
Love nature and want to lend her a helping hand? Grab gloves and give back by planting native trees in Lower Merion Township!
Natural Lands partners with Lower Merion Conservancy to plant at least 50 trees at each of several sites in a week. Together, we’ll enhance community open space, create woodland habitat, and improve air and water quality for the benefit of all.
Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the natural world, give your time to a great cause, and connect with like-minded people.
Saunders Woods Preserve is a natural oasis for wildlife and community residents in the heart of the Main Line. The Bridlewild Trail passes through the preserve and connects to a wider system of paths that wind through the community. A walk here reveals a lively forest habitat as well as an open meadow that is home to a variety of bird species.
