Laredo Return of the 100 Acre Woods
This event is focused on trees, trees, and more trees! The goal is to gather 900 volunteers and plant 200 trees! Calling on all types, ages, and abilities of volunteers for this special event!
The Return of the 100-Acre Wood at North Central Park benefits the continued development of the facility, assists the Manadas Creek watershed and also celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Park’s existence. Now, one of the most widely used venues for community events, including a popular spot for 5Ks and the annual Spring Break Kite Festival, the fall is the ideal time to plant new trees and get people together when the climate is friendlier for outdoor work!
Volunteer registration will be open at 7:30 a.m. for on-site check-in and will be in two locations at the park, North Access Point and Central Access Point. Please note that pre-registration will require selection of one or the other location.
A. North access will be through the Concentrix call Center Parking Lot, 2451 Monarch Dr.
B. Central access will be through the main park entrance, by the swimming pool, 10202 International Boulevard
Participants will be planting trees, and possibly other smaller plants, spreading mulch, recreating tree wells for existing trees that are on-site, and handling other tasks in relation to these activities. Some volunteers may also assist with logistical tasks, and help with the distribution of tools, cleaning aides, food, and water. Refreshments, breakfast snacks and lunch will be provided for all volunteers!
