Akron Chapter's May Unified Promise

20 May 2017
9:45am - 1:00pm EDT

Trees are not merely pleasant sources of shade but a potentially major answer to some of our most pressing environmental problem. We take them for granted, but they are a near miracle. 

A tree planted in someone’s name - someone you love or have lost - is a tribute that benefits present and future generations, and is perhaps the most fitting way to honor and celebrate someone who has helped you grow. Multiple trees can be dedicated. Memorialize a loved one, celebrate a milestone, plant a tree in remembrance of a pet, or honor someone with a tree simply because they cherish nature.  

Join us as we plant trees on Saturday, May 20 th from 9:45 AM to 1:00 PM in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We need the commitment of up to 30 volunteers. 

Where to meet: We will be meeting at Hale Farm and Village located at 2686 Oak Hill Road, Bath, OH (use Peninsula, OH 44264 for GPS directions) Look for the red “Volunteer Event” signs. Due to limited parking at the work sites, we will be taking a shuttle from this meeting location and you will not have access to your vehicle during the event, please plan ahead.

What to wear: comfortable work clothes, long pants, and sturdy, closed toe shoes or boots, and dress for the weather. Volunteers will be working off trail in vegetation that is knee to chest high.

We will provide: work gloves, safety glasses, and all necessary tools, instructions, safety guidelines, water, light snacks, and restroom facilities. We will also provide bug spray. 

Please bring a refillable water bottle and sunscreen if you feel you will need it. 

Still not convinced this is Unified Promise is for you? As an old proverb stated, “When is the best time to plant a tree? The answer: “Twenty years ago. The second-best time? Today”. 

This Unified Promise is in partnership with Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Cuyahoga Valley National Park encompasses 33,000 acres along the Cuyahoga River between Cleveland and Akron, Ohio. Managed by the National Park Service, Cuyahoga Valley National Park combines cultural, historical, recreational, and natural activities in one setting.
