Volunteer – Tree Planting Week in Lower Merion

Saunders Woods Preserve | Sat, December 09, 2017, 9:30am - 11:30am


Calling all volunteers to get involved in a week of Tree Planting! Natural Lands partners with Lower Merion Conservancy to plant 50 trees a day over 5 days in various locations around the township. Together we’ll enhance open space with native trees for all to enjoy!

Volunteering is a great way to learn about habitats and wildlife, while helping care for natural resources and connecting with communities. We’ll plant at a different location each day, starting at 9:30 AM with Natural Lands preserve manager Luke Hamilton.

Grab a friend, and join our week of volunteer tree planting!

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.
