Tree Planting by Bike

Celebrate Oregon Arbor Week on bikes! Join Friends of Trees Eugene and plant native trees in Jefferson Park along the bike path through the Lane County Fairgrounds, and street and yard trees in nearby neighborhoods. Join us this Saturday, April 7, 10am-1pm, Amazon Path, near the Fairgrounds.

Event begins at 10am with a speech by Mayor Piercy and the City of Eugene receiving it’s Tree City USA award. Then we will break into teams and plant 25 trees in the park and another 40-60 street and yard trees in adjoining neighborhoods. We will have one or two teams planting neighborhood trees by bike, so let us know if you have bike trailers to bring and ride if you can. There will be a barbeque hosted by Northwest Natural with food and drinks for all after the trees are planted.

For more information, contact Erik Burke at ErikB@FriendsofTrees.org or 541-632-3683
