Volunteering

Join the fun! Volunteer with the HB Tree Society.

Eagle Scout Project in April 2016

Eagle Scout Project in the Urban Forest

We’re always in need of enthusiastic, motivated individuals to help with weekly beautification projects!

We plant, weed and do tree care in the Urban Forest and along the Shipley to Shore Nature Trail in the back (south end) of Central Park West on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. While planting is everyone’s favorite task, please keep in mind that the cost of newly planted trees and bushes adds up! Also, they will require regular watering for the first few months to survive. Help with their expense and ongoing tending is appreciated.

Volunteers waivers are required and can be found by clicking here. To make group arrangements and for more details, please email jnagytree@aol.com.

HB Tree Society team members also plant, weed and nurture the Secret Garden and beautify other areas of Central Park East. Children should be accompanied by an adult. We have a work day every Friday from 10 a.m. -noon.  Wear sturdy shoes and a hat, and bring gloves, trowel and clippers if you have them, along with your water bottle.  Come into the Garden and ask for the volunteers, as we are probably working all over the Secret Garden. Rain cancels. Questions?  Call Juana at 714-960-3354.

Find volunteers in Gibbs Butterfly Park on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. To receive training to volunteer here, please call or text Bonnie at 714-473-6592.

At Overlook Park, volunteers come out most Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to Noon, as well as other times when they’re available throughout the week. Once acclimated, individuals wishing to volunteer can assist at their convenience. For more information, please contact Steve at 714-837-9199, or email HB Tree Society President Jean Nagy at jnagytree@aol.com

Specific group projects can be arranged. Bring your gloves and wear closed-toed shoes (No flip flops please!), a sun hat, long pants and sunscreen.
