2023 MLK Day of Service – Baby Tree Watering

2023 MLK Day of Service


Westside Baby Tree Watering Project



Calling all Tree Lovers! Come help baby trees survive by watering them!

Join us to make it a “Day On, not a Day Off,” on Monday, January 16th as part of the MLK National Day of Service in Long Beach.

The Need We Serve:

In November there were over 100 baby trees planted on the Westside. These baby trees need your help to survive. They will provide fresh oxygen for the residents of the Westside, shade, and shelter for neighborhood birds, and beauty in the neighborhood.



How to Serve:

We need Volunteers to take water to the trees, Volunteers to help fill water bags, and Volunteers to test and record the moisture level of the trees.

If you are interested in helping, sign up here:
