Join the fun work party to kick off the new year! Help remove weedy introduced plants and plant native trees and shrubs along the newly-developed Gateway Green! Gateway Green offers 25 acres of bike adventure fun along the I-205 corridor. Your help will improve the vitality of this public space, reduce the nearby neighborhoods' exposure to I-205 traffic pollution, and provide a safer, healthier greenway for years to come!
Please note: this park is only accessible via the I-205 Multi-Use Path. There is an approximately 10 - 15 minute paved walk from the Gateway Transit Center. Volunteers are encouraged to bike to the planting or take public transportation to the transit center and walk from there. Thank you for supporting an alternative approach to arriving at this community event! Google map of actual location HERE.
Please arrive by 8:30am to have time to walk to the site, sign-in and enjoy some breakfast refreshments provided by local businesses. The planting starts at 9:00am. Friends of Trees provides gloves, tools, and planting guidance -- all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather wearing sturdy shoes or boots, and be ready to have fun!
