Volunteer to Plant Trees

Help plant trees along streets, trails, in parks and restoration areas throughout the region. Every spring and fall volunteers plant hundreds of trees around Western Pennsylvania. When you help plant trees, you help create a green and healthy region. You’ll also learn about different types of trees and tree care. Check out the planting schedule and pre-register today.
Community Garden Stewards Needed
April 1, 2019 to October 1, 2019
Have you ever seen a WPC garden and wondered how it stays looking colorful, strong and healthy? A loyal crew of volunteers known as Garden Stewards cares for the Conservancy’s many gardens. After spring planting, Garden Stewards help water, weed, prune and clean up the areas. 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 email@example.com to learn how to get started. The gardens below need stewards to care for them in 2018/2019 seasons:
