In the past year, the DC Urban Forestry Administration planted many new trees along the commercial areas of 17th, 18th and P Streets and other residential streets. However, many owners and renters, of homes and businesses, do not realize that they need to water these sidewalk to help them survive the summer heat.
Join us for a quick inventory of new and distressed trees on Saturday, June 11, 2011, 9:00-11:30am.
Meet at 9:00am at the small park at the intersection of T, 17th and New Hampshire. We will provide a brief overview of how to do the inventory over doughnuts and coffee and then head off in teams or alone to do the inventory. Please bring your own water and sunscreen.
We will reconvene at 11:30am to hand in the forms. If anyone wants to meet for a non-host brunch afterwards at Cajun Experience, at 1825- 18th Street, just let us know.
Please share this opportunity with your friends and neighbors. If you plan on participating, please reply to Nancy Diamond nk_diamond (AT) verizon (DOT) net) or (202-667-5818) by Friday, June 3. Please be sure to say if you want to be part of the group brunch.
