Monthly Events: This MAY Be the Time to Volunteer for a Greener LA

Spring is officially in full swing and May is the month you should consider volunteering to green our great city and improve water quality conditions. For more info on the following events, including time and location, please visit the embedded links or check out our calendar.

>Every Thursday during the month of May TreePeople will be hosting a Park Work Day in Beverly Hills, so if the weekend is too busy, you may want to devote a lovely Thursday afternoon to help out the community. All outings are from 10am to 12pm.

>On Saturday May 8th you can join in the Great LA River Clean-up, where volunteers with Friends of the Los Angeles River pick up litter and help to revive out city’s main artery to the ocean. After your day in the sun L.A. Eco-Village will host a cool documentary on a kayak trip down the LA River.

>TreePeople is back at it on Sunday, May 9th in Calabasas. Volunteers will help the group plant oak trees and native bunch grasses to restore habitat along Las Virgenes and Malibu Creeks.

>If the beginning of the month is already booked, why not consider heading out to Topanga Canyon on Saturday the 15th to help TreePeople restore the watershed by planting native trees.

>Saturday May 22nd and Sunday May 23rd are also set to be a fun-filled days. Join Music 4 Relief, TreePeople's Ryan Allen, and the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks at a local park for some much-needed reforestation. It’s all part of Million Trees LA. So help plant a few trees and be a part of history.

>Lastly, on May 29th, head out to Sylmar to water newly planted trees with TreePeople. Last October over 50 trees were planted and they are in need of some care so that they survive the upcoming dry months.
