Joy Boulevard Park, Saturday, April 17, 9 a.m.
The Clinton Township Conservation Committee seeks volunteers to help plant 20 trees at Joy Boulevard Park on Saturday, April 17. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with planting to start at 9:30 a.m.
“Throughout the year, residents are invited to join us in planting small trees in our Township parks,” said Clinton Township Trustee and Conservation Committee Chair Mike Keys. “It’s always a great opportunity to beautify our community and foster strong roots with your family and neighbors,” he said.
Joy Boulevard Park is located at 23701 Henry B. Joy Boulevard in Clinton Township.
Keys added that the event includes a short presentation about the importance of trees in our ecosystem and training on how best to plant them. “Our parks are vital assets in creating safe and welcoming neighborhoods,” he said.
Trees will be spaced apart to allow for social distancing, and masks, which will be provided, are required to participate.
Personnel from the Township’s Public Services Department will pre-dig holes for the trees in advance, and equipment will be available to spread the roots. Volunteers are asked to bring gloves and a shovel or rake if possible. The tree planting will take place rain or shine unless the weather is severe.
