    Come help RPCV/W care for young trees in Washington, DC!

    As a part of Casey Trees' Tree Care Kit program, we will be helping with weeding, mulching and watering vulnerable trees and give them a leg up in becoming an important part of our growing tree canopy. 

    Note: Casey Trees has given us our assignment for this community service event and due to need, the location has changed to Columbia Island, DC. Once you RSVP, information will be provided on where to meet the group.
