Brookland based Casey Trees is not only a great neighbor, they do a lot every day to restore DC’s tree canopy. If you haven’t volunteered with them in the past, now is a great time to check out some of their events. There is something for people of all abilities and knowledge levels to contribute, you meet great people, get free lunch and improve our city! While they have quite a few ways to get involved, here are some upcoming volunteer opportunities right in our backyard. Check out their Event Calender for more info and sign up soon, events fill up quickly.
