Come plant trees with us! Volunteers of all ages are invited to the annual Reforest the Bluegrass tree planting event. We’ll have music, food and fun for the whole family. 

Reforest the Bluegrass AT HOME info below also!

2024 Event
Saturday, April 13 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Coldstream Park, 1850 Pisacano Drive

Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to plant seedlings. Volunteers should dress for the weather, including shoes or boots that can get muddy and wet.

Reforest the Bluegrass is a great opportunity for families, religious groups, scout troops, and social organizations to participate in a public service event. Participants will be trained how to properly plant seedlings. .

Planting trees in the community decreases the amount of storm water runoff, which reduces soil erosion and pollution in our waterways and may lessen the effects of flooding. Trees also provide habitats for the many birds in our beautiful state, with over 300 birds thriving in our humid subtropical climate.
