This past Friday (“Earth Day Eve”), JRA, Capital Trees, and the park system  worked together on a special event on Chapel Island and in Great Shiplock Park with 70 Altria employees who spent a morning removing invasives, planting a whopping 600 native plants (from Garden Gate), and doing additional maintenance work.

Come on out and join JRA and Capital Trees on Monday, April 24th or a fourth Monday coming soon!   Visit our global calendar and click on the day’s event for contact information.  The more volunteers, the more we can accomplish.
