Community Planting Day On November 16

Volunteers are invited to plant native trees at Brookwood Elementary’s playground on Saturday, November 16 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am during Community Planting Day.  The trees will provide much needed shade for students at the school in Dalton, GA.

This event, sponsored by the Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia and Dalton Utilities, is in celebration of National Planting Day.  This is an initiative of Keep America Beautiful to plant native plants, trees, and shrubs to enhance biodiversity, and protect wildlife in local communities.

Pre-registration for volunteers is not required. Participants should wear close toe shoes, and weather appropriate clothes.  The majority of tools and supplies will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own shovel if possible.

Special thanks to the following event organizers: Dalton Tree Board, Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful, and Whitfield County 4-H.  Click here to download the event flier, or call 706-226-6211 for more information.
