Can you and/or your organization serve as Water Brigade volunteers to help water the newly planted trees on planting day?

 

Volunteers are needed to help make sure each tree is deep watered with 15 gallons on planting day to help them get off to a good start. 

 

 

Would your group like to provide refreshments for the volunteers?

 

Lupe with Orange County’s Credit Union will bring volunteers and water for the volunteers!

 

 

Can you and/or your organization assist with watering the trees during their first year?

 

Thank you for pledging to water the trees during their first year:
