Volunteers invited to join the Dirt Don’t Hurt 4H Club and Future Forestry Corp. to plant 300 Slash Pines to celebrate Earth Day – this Saturday!!

April 21, 2021 - The Future Forestry organization is teaming up with the "Dirt Don’t Hurt" 4H Club this Saturday, April 24th from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. to plant 300 Slash Pines at the NE corner of Veteran's Memorial Parkway and Surfside Blvd. The 4H Club will be there with 30 kids and adult chaperones. All volunteers are invited to join the project! An hour our two will make the Earth a better place for years to come! You can’t ask for a better Earth Day celebration than that!

Volunteers should bring hats and sun protection, gloves, and a shovel with their name on it (if they have one). What’s in it for volunteers? It is guaranteed they leave knowing they helped beautify the area, and did their part to help kids work for a sustainable future. The group will be digging holes, planting trees, mulching, and watering trees. There is something for all skill levels!! This is a collaboration of www.FutureForestry.org, and www.facebook.com/dirtdonthurt4h/, and an environmental award from www.lcec.net. The media is invited to join the celebration and education!
