A Leafy Way to Spend a Saturday

This past Saturday, more than 70 volunteers of all ages joined AWS staff and interns to plant trees on the hillside surrounding the Bladensburg Wetlands!

Many thanks to the wonderful volunteers pictured below, as well the others who have joined us in the last two weeks! As a direct result of their hard work, we have planted more than 100 of the 900 trees planned for this location.  

We still need your help! Tree plantings with AWS are scheduled for every Saturday in April! Click here to visit the calendar to sign up, or call our Volunteer Coordinator at 301-699-6204 ext. 109. 

See you there!

Eagle Scout Candidate Caps Off 2011 Tree Planting

Eagle Scout Candidate Trung Vo brought out Troop 904 from Arlington, VA to plant 106 native trees in Magruder Park in Hyattsville, MD.  Their effort will cap off our tree and shrub plantings for 2011 at a total of 857, our most ever!  Check out the video above for even more detail, and consider joining us to help out at one of our upcoming volunteer events.
