I received this email today:
This is a last call for any volunteers who would like to participate in our tree planting this weekend. We have over 400 trees to plant around the bike path of the Department of Transportation's North Spokane Corridor!
Whether you have service hours to complete or you would just like to get out and make a difference in Spokane's native landscape, we are inviting people of all ages to join us. If you would like to bring younger children to this event, please keep them near you for safety.
Light snacks, coffee, and water will be provided, but please bring your own water container to refill.
Here is the information you will need:
Location: At the North Spokane Corridor bike path between Hawthorn and Parksmith. Parking is available on Parksmith, but you will need to walk or ride your bike in to the site (approximately half a mile). Please see our Google map for the exact location.
View Tree planting N. Corridor 9-11 a.m. Sat. Sept. 18th in a larger map
Date: Saturday, September 18
Recommended supplies: Some shovels will be provided, but bringing your own is suggested. Please bring work gloves, a water bottle, and check the weather for appropriate attire.
We hope to see you out there tomorrow morning!

Over 400 trees? That's a boatload of holes to dig in two hours so they could use a lot of hands. But if there's a place that needs unuglifying, it's the NSC bike path.
Bummer, I will be in Missoula tomorrow.
