2020 Trees For Kids Planting Event

May 11 - May 15, 2020

8:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The City of Waverly is looking for small groups to help in planting 88 trees across Waverly. This planting project is made possible with the City of Waverly being awarded a Trees For Kids Grant through the Iowa DNR. It is a matching funds grant with the remaining funds coming from Waverly Utilities through the Waverly Chapter of Trees Forever.

In compliance with the grant, groups should include at least 1 child under age 18. The planting project is meant to be educational to show kids the importance of trees and the role they play to provide shade, absorb storm water, sequester carbon, produce oxygen, calm traffic, reduce glare, as well as many social benefits.

If you, your family, or a group of 3 people or less, would like to volunteer to help plant trees, please sign up at the following link: Trees For Kids Sign Up or contact Waverly Leisure Services at 319-352-6263. Planting days will be Monday, May 11 through Friday, May 15, 2020. Time slots will be in 2-hour increments with 2 groups and locations for each slot. Time slots will be as follows: 8:00-10:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., and 1:00-3:00 p.m. Please call the Leisure Services office to arrange planting times outside of these hours.
