Plant a Tree, Enjoy a Lobster Dinner with the Rotary Club

The Rotary Club of Alameda cares deeply about the environment and climate protection.  Every year the Rotary Club of Alameda does tree plantings in local parks in cooperation with 100K Trees for Humanity and the City’s Recreation and Parks Department. The public is welcome—and encouraged—to participate.

This year, the Rotary Club’s tree planting will be in Leydecker Park on Saturday, February 24, at 10 a.m., and you’re invited! It’s a lot of fun and feels great to get trees in the ground to beautify our parks in Alameda, provide habitat for wildlife, clean the air, and protect the climate.

Bring your gardening gloves. Everything else will be provided. To RSVP, email to Rotary Club of Alameda President Joyce Mercado at [email protected]. Please let her know how many will be in your party.
