Great news campers – we have the green light from The US Forest Service to come back for the 3rd Annual Tree Replanting Party near Camp Tuolumne!
Saturday March 10, 2018 9am – 4pm
at Rush Creek Lodge
We stayed at the beautiful Rush Creek Lodge just outside Yosemite on Friday and Saturday nights last year, with great food, cocktails, hot tubs, etc… it was a fabulous get-a-way weekend! They are once again generously supporting our efforts, and offering us a 50% discount again, which can be used for Lodge King Rooms and Villas.
Please email our Volunteer Coordinator Katie Whitty if you’d like to join us this year and she can give you the discount code for online reservations and answer any questions you have. No experience necessary, families are welcome, and the USFS will provide everything we need (trees, shovels, etc..).
It is a marvelous experience, and the trees that we planted last year are growing well (photo below!) Last year we had over 40 volunteers join the Americorp support team and plant over 3000 trees in one day! They make it SO easy for us to do this work, and it was SO healing and wonderful to put trees into the ground!
