Volunteers to plant 100 trees in El Dorado Park South
2010-03-02 · By Editor
The City of Long Beach Neighborhood Services Bureau in partnership with El Dorado Park South neighborhood Association and the crew of the USS Dewey will be planting 100 trees in the neighborhood. The funding for the trees is part of a Grant that the City was awarded from the State of California’s Green Trees for the Golden State Grant.
The crew of the USS Dewey is volunteering two hours to work with community residents and city staff to plant trees along Stearns Street, Stevely Avenue, Pattiz Avenue, Shipway Avenue, and Volk Avenue within the El Dorado Park South neighborhood.
This event is part of a week-long celebration of the commissioning of the USS Dewey that will take place on March 6, 2010 in Seal Beach. Additionally, 125 volunteers will be participating thru the “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” promotion.
Neighborhood Services Bureau has a long history of working in the communities to improve the quality of life for the residents. The trees will provide additional resources to make positive changes to the environment of the neighborhoods while providing better air quality and energy conservation benefits. Over the last decade, the Bureau has planted over 13,000 neighborhood trees.
The tree planting will take place on March 3, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. The meeting location will be the vacant lot in the middle of the 6900 block of Stearns Street.
