Anacostia Tree Planting - April 16th

On Saturday, April 16, 2011, COG DEP is hosting a tree planting with the Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission – Prince George’s County, in Riverdale, MD from 9:00 A.M. to Noon.

We have 200 trees to plant and mulch and could use your assistance.  This is a great opportunity for students to gain community service credit hours while learning about the environment in their region.

Come and get some exercise to start your Saturday and learn about the Anacostia Watershed and Chesapeake Bay Restoration efforts.
  • Come reforest the banks of the Northeast Branch to help clean the Anacostia River and fight climate change.
  • We will be planting approximately 200 native trees and shrubs (holes will be pre-dug).
  • No experience necessary.
