March 25 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
The last two years have been kinda crazy, that’s why we are hosting the 2021 Day of Service in 2022 at Hawthorne Hollow Arboretum. The site address is 880 Green Bay Rd, Kenosha, WI 53144. The event is scheduled for Friday, March 25th with an inclement weather day planned for the following Friday, April 1st.
Hawthorne Hollow’s mission …”is to cultivate appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of our natural and local heritage through environmental education and sanctuary preservation” and they could use our help.
There is a wide variety of work opportunities available, climbing, aerial lift applications (bucket and crawler lift access) the majority of the work is pruning orientated with a number of removals there are even a few cabling opportunities for those that are interested.
Our work day will start at 8am. All volunteers bringing heavy equipment such as bucket trucks, chip trucks, and lifts, please bring proper cones and signage to set up a safe work area.
Lunch, refreshments and warming areas will be provided by Hawthorne Hallow. Local media will be on site to help promote the efforts of our volunteers. Students from a number urban forestry programs will be in attendance, this will be a great opportunity to mentor, teach and advertise to the new generation of arborists.
Please contact Adam Alves at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to volunteer. If you plan on attending Please let him know how many people are attending and what kind of equipment you can volunteer for the day by January 21st so we can plan accordingly.
