Volunteer

Spruce-Up South Park Avenue involves dozens of volunteers

Saturday, May 10, 2014 was a day to revisit Re-Tree’s massive 360-tree planting from 2010. Olmsted Parks, Senator Tim Kennedy’s staff, Amherst H.S. Varsity Boys Lacrosse, Bishop Timon-St.Jude H.S., and more converged on the area and weeded. mulched, and pruned the trees.

Looking good….all the trees will be leafing out soon.

8th Annual Buffalo Enviro-Fair ….another great success!

Held once again in Niagara Square in front of Buffalo’s City Hall on Friday, April 25, 2014 (Arbor Day), from 11am-2pm.  14 eco-organizations  hosted booths and talked about how they contribute to a sustainable planet.

We planted a crabapple tree near City Hall in the monument triangle.

Towne MINI & Towne BMW featured their latest gas-sipping cars and also gave out 1,500 FREE tree seedlings!

The 8th Annual Enviro-Fair was made possible by our main sponsors, Towne MINI, Towne BMW, CIR Electric, and Entercom Radio.

Next year will be our 9th, so plant to attend.
