Our Middle Run Tree Planting occurs every year to support our effort to make the 860-acre Middle Run Natural Area ever more attractive for native wildlife. Join us at this annual event to help us plant trees!
Individuals, families, friends, scouts, and other groups interested in helping: bring your muscles and enthusiasm!
Volunteers dig holes, plant, cage, and water up to 600 trees. We ask that volunteers bring shovels, gloves, and a water container (bucket or gal milk jug).
Volunteers should dress for the weather. We plant rain or shine. Unvaccinated people are recommended to wear a mask.
Children are welcome but each child MUST be accompanied by an adult.
Groups over the size of 15 should call to register: (302) 239-2334.
Planting will take place at the field at the intersection of Polly Drummond Hill Rd. and Smith Mill Rd. between the VCA Pike Creek Animal Hospital and Little’s Garage. (This is not the typical entrance to the Middle Run Valley Natural Area!)
