Stewardship at Lawrence Orr Elementary School

April 20 2021, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

For this Stewardship event, TreesCharlotte is returning to the campus of Lawrence Orr Elementary to do routine maintenance on the trees planted in the spring of 2019.  Volunteers will be placing fresh bags of mulch around the trees.  TreesCharlotte periodically returns to school campuses to ensure that the trees we previously planted continue to thrive.  Stewardship events are vital to our mission of expanding Charlotte’s tree canopy and are a great team building activity.

Interested in volunteering at this event, please complete the form below.  Deadline to register is Sunday, April 18.
