Wanna' Plant a Few Trees?

If you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty, Lehigh County could use your help.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 18, the Department of Parks and Recreation is holding a tree planting event at Trexler Nature Preserve in Schnecksville. Thanks to a $10,000 donation from Air Products, the county purchased 500 trees to restore a healthy ecosystem on the north range of the preserve.

The event will take place rain or shine. No tree planting experience is necessary but volunteers are asked to bring their own shovels, gloves and water to drink. I personally don't drink water. Fish piss in it. I'd suggest a flask or two of something else like gatorade. And a few buffalo burgers.

If you’d like to volunteer, call Robin Stemetzki in the Parks and Recreation at 610-871-0281 or email her at robinstemetzki@lehighcounty.org before Oct. 2.
