The year is half over, have you volunteered yet? Well, if you have, thank you. If you haven’t yet had a chance, let June be your month! For more info on the following events, including time and location, please visit the embedded links or check out our calendar.

>Come out on Saturday, June 5th and help the Echo Park Trash Abatement Project clean up litter along Sunset Blvd. Tree People will also be at it in Topanga Canyon planting trees.

>On Sunday, June 6th join hundreds of residents in celebration of 10 years of Riding the River. The day of family events will support the cleaning up and revitalization of the LA River!

>Tree People will be busy on June 12th in Harbor City and out in Sun Valley planting 1 million trees! Join the effort to make LA a greener, more tree happy place to live.

>If the first part of the month doesn’t work for you, there are plenty of events in the latter part of June that might be a good fit! On June 19th Tree People needs your help cleaning up the beach in Playa Del Rey and planting trees in South LA on the 26th.

>Tree planting isn’t your cup of tea? How about surfing? If so, surfers are uniting on June 20th in Santa Monica to cheer on International Surfing Day. Surfrider will be on hand promoting awareness for the sustainability of our ocean resources. Cowabunga!

>If your weekends are packed, there is also a volunteer event on Thursday, June 24th in Coldwater Canyon. Tree People supporters will be amassing to support Park Work Day by cleaning up a popular park in the area.
