Volunteers needed to help with tree planting event
October 4, 2012
The city of Newcastle will again host its Arbor Day tree planting event, and it is seeking volunteers to help.
This year’s event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 13. The location has not yet been decided, but it will most likely take place somewhere in the May Creek corridor.
The city will update its website at www.ci.newcastle.wa.us when a location is chosen.
At last year’s event, the city sought volunteers to plant 250 trees along the East May Creek Trail.
The city celebrates Arbor Day now due to better planting conditions.
