We plant rain, snow or shine! If the weather is clear, bring your own brown bag lunch and enjoy new friends as you explore the park after planting. REMEMBER TO BRING gloves, a shovel and a rake if you have one.
This event was established in 2001 to combat the critical loss of trees in Fort Wayne and Allen County. Over the last 50 years, our parks have lost over 50% of the tree canopy due to weather and disease. Friends of the Parks invite you to partner with area park departments, other businesses, neighborhoods and community volunteers to fund and/or plant new trees in our parks and public spaces.
If you can’t plant to support this important program, please consider funding a tree or gather a group and pool your resources for a grove of trees. Your gifts are a lasting legacy to our community.
