See you Saturday!

October 13, Ben Franklin Park


Hi everyone! Hope you are all excited for the event tomorrow (Saturday)! Just wanted to make sure everyone was crystal clear on the basics (Where to meet, what to wear/bring, what to expect).

Please note the event will take place rain or sunshine - there may be a trace amount of rain, but I'd say the weather is looking pretty good for October 14th!

We recommend that you arrive a few minutes earlier than the specified time in order to complete registration and receive your TD Tree Days t-shirt. There will be a brief welcome huddle where important information will be shared followed by instructions on how to properly plant the trees/shrubs.  

Parking and Directions:
There is a parking lot at the corner of Gibbard and Knoxdale Rd just north of the Ben Franklin Dome. Address is 180 Knoxdale Rd. 

Safety Considerations:


  • Wear closed toed sturdy footwear. Please do not wear sandals or flip flops to the event.
  • Dress for the weather. You can dress in layers with a windbreaker and bring rain gear in case of rainy conditions.
  • Hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are also good items to bring along.
  • Previous volunteers are encouraged to wear their TD Tree Days t-shirt from last year.

Please bring the following items with you:

  • Garden gloves will be provided, please feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
  • A reusable water bottle.
  • If you are bringing minors of which you aren't the parent/guardian, please download and print the Minor Participant Waiver and Photo Release forms ( for parent/guardian signature. You must provide the signed forms to the TD Site Leader when you arrive at the event. (I will be wearing a bright green shirt).

Thank you once again for volunteering.

Looking forward to meeting you at the event!
