Volunteer to Plant Trees

November 20, 2019 to November 23, 2019

Volunteer Opportunity

Help plant trees along streets and trails and in parks and restoration areas throughout Western Pennsylvania. Every spring and fall, we need help from volunteers to plant hundreds of trees around the region. When you plant trees, you are helping create a green and healthy region. You’ll also learn about different types of native trees and tree care.

Sign up to volunteer below. For more information contact Alicia Wehrle at 412-586-2386 or AWehrle@paconserve.org.

Have you ever seen a WPC garden and wondered how it stays looking colorful, strong and healthy?

Stewards work from spring to fall.

Are you looking for a way to get outside and tend a garden?  We can help! Can we count on you to help a garden bloom all summer long? Contact Lynn McGuire-Olzak at 412-586-2324 or lolzak@paconserve.org to learn how to get started. The gardens below need stewards to care for them in the 2019 season:
