April 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
For Earth Day 2022, GL-UNA is partnering with the Okemos High School Earth Club to promote environmental awareness and to allow community members to easily access tree planting for a greener future. You can pick up your saplings on April 30th and plant them with the option to have help from our high school volunteers!
DEADLINE TO ORDER SAPLINGS IS MARCH 30!
The goal is to distribute and plant 300 saplings to offset the paper usage of Okemos high school- with the added benefits of native habitat building and shade.
Saplings are $5.00 each, and volunteers will come and plant them in your yard on April 30!
NOW is the next best time to plant a tree!
If you’d like to volunteer please fill out the form below!
