General Volunteer Information

original_64ca14a98c24327f0cff4a13ce0f4784Each year, hundreds of volunteers join forces with Camden residents and the NJ Tree Foundation to dig holes, plant trees, lay mulch, and have fun at Urban Airshed Reforestation Program planting events.

All tree plantings are rain or shine. Volunteers should dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and wear clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. Tools, gloves, water, and planting instructions are provided.
