Planting event in Ellicott Creek Park

Date(s) - Saturday, Oct 29, 2022
11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Ellicott Creek Park


Join Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper‘s RestoreCorps to help install 72 trees/shrubs within a newly created natural regeneration area in Ellicott Creek Park, 1 Ellicott Creek Dr, Tonawanda, (See a map of the meeting area here.) The event  will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29. (The rain date will be Saturday, Nov. 5.)

If you intend to register, please arrive about 15 minutes early to allow enough time to park and sign-in prior to the start of the planting event.

During this event, volunteers will be planting, mulching, and watering trees and shrubs using a combination of hand tools (garden trowels, and/or hori hori tools) and larger tools (shovels, edgers and wheelbarrows). The goal is to install 72 plants over the course of the 2-hour planting event, which means each volunteer should expect to plant between 3-4 plants depending on the size/type during the event. The plantings will occur within existing restoration areas, so volunteers should be able to walk on uneven ground and be able to kneel and bend as needed to accomplish the planting tasks.
