Here's the initial schedule I'm putting out for planting the seedlings.
I know the Monday time conflicts with the board meeting, but Saturday is out because of St. Pat's day and I want to give groups like LCTA and Trees Forever some time slots. The sooner the trees are in the better, especially with temps rising so fast (which is hard on seedlings).
I'll meet at Beverly Park (37th Ave and 21st St SW) at 2PM Sunday March 18 and Monday March 19th at 5:30PM. Also with Kirkwood groups on Tuesday March 20 at 2:15pm and Weds March 21 at 12:15 pm.
I'm hoping to have people work in 3 person teams to get the spots cleared a little (mainly grassy meadows) align the seedling and someone to use the shovel or dibble bar. If anyone has some extra 5 gallon buckets I think we can use them. (For hauling seedlings to site in water). Leave them at my place or at the trailer.
In anticipation of a dry spring, I'm also encouraging people to bring gallon jugs of water to haul to the meadows so we can help the seedlings if needed. This may be an ongoing project if things get hot and too dry.
