    Marr Drain Aftercare

    Aftercare eventsKeeping the forest in the Forest City takes more than just planting trees alone! Caring for trees during their first few years is essential to the success of a naturalization project. That's why we go back to our planting sites from June to September to help ensure their survival.

    Being an Aftercare Assistant Volunteer:

    Our Tree Specialists will help you to identify the weeds that need to be removed around the trees, as well as identifying which grasses need to be covered in mulch around the trees so that they can retain moisture.

    No experience, training or volunteer registration is required to attend an aftercare event. We'll teach you everything you need to know at the beginning of the event.

    Here are some tips to help you have a great volunteer experience:

    • Be prompt – we’ll teach you everything at the beginning of the event.
    • Wear sturdy shoes  no sandals or flip-flops please.
    • Wear clothing appropriate to the weather – we care for the trees rain or shine! Long pants are recommended! Don’t forget sunscreen.
    • Bring water – we’ll have a jug to refill your reusable bottle.
    • Volunteer hours – Secondary students can earn volunteer hours at our events. Don’t forget your forms!
    • Getting there – Consider walking, cycling, carpooling, or taking the bus to our events.
    • Some of our locations are tricky to find. Please look at our maps and watch for posted white signs directing you to the planting locations.
    • Cancellations – We do cancel aftercare due to inclement weather (eg. heat or thunderstorm warnings), so please check day-of on Facebook and our website if you are unsure.
