9:00 AM  –  1:00 PM

Delaware Nature Society has managed the land at the 860-acre Middle Run Natural Area for over 15 years and has coordinated a major reforestation project at the park since 1991 in partnership with New Castle County. More than 55,000 trees have been planted, enhancing biodiversity, and improving the quality of the watershed.

But our job isn't done yet. We need your help!

Individuals, families, friends, scouts, and other groups interested in helping - bring your muscles and enthusiasm!

Volunteers dig holes, plant, cage, and water up to 600 trees.

Bring shovels if you have them (we also have some), gloves, and a water container (bucket or gallon milk jug).

Volunteers should dress for the weather. We plant rain or shine.

Groups over the size of 15 should call to register: (302) 239-2334.

  The site of this year’s planting is just north of 345 Polly Drummond Hill Rd, Newark Delaware 19711.

Children are welcome but each child MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Family* (all ages) | Free for everyone | Registration required
