Rotary Club of Dubuque offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Members and non-members are invited to join in these opportunities to provide service.
TREE PLANTING PROJECT
Saturday, April 28
Various Sites in Dubuque – TBD
The Rotary Club of Dubuque will be working with Dubuque Trees Forever on the spring planting project and is in need of volunteers.
The project is scheduled for Saturday, April 28th (approximately 9am-noon) at 20-25 different planting sites around town. We’ll be providing replacement trees for the ash trees that were removed from the space between the sidewalk & curb in front of many homes this winter due to the Emerald Ash Borer.
Rotary is expected to have about 25 volunteers and will be working alongside volunteers from Dubuque Trees Forever on this project. Many of the duties are non-physical in nature so all ages and abilities are welcome. In addition to removing old soil and planting the trees, there is a need for people to provide brochures and homeowner education about their new tree and for people to help setup and serve snack/beverage to the volunteers and the congregation point.
Please email us if you’re interested in helping and indicate if you’re up to the physical duties or if you prefer a non-physical role. Each are just as important to the process.
The project will happen in a light rain but the alternate date is May 5th should there be extreme weather that day.
