The City of Cookeville will be planting 2,500 bare root trees this year and would like to have volunteers to help us out. The trees will be planted in three wetlands located on Bob Gentry Road as a wetland enhancement project; this site was cleared by a previous owner.
When: March 25 & April 1, 9:00 – 12:00 each day.
Meet at the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Office, 1221 S. Willow Ave. and we will caravan out to the site.
What to wear: Sturdy boots – water proof if you have them, sturdy long pants & shirts, coats/jackets as the weather requires
What to bring: If you have a sharp shooter shovel or other shovel you can bring it.
We will have: shovels, gloves, bottled water, snacks and of course the bare root trees.
