Panther Community Plunge: Trees Atlanta

Saturday, August 29th, 2020 from 9:00am to 1:00pm (ET)


Tree Care Project in Thomasville Heights

Make a difference in our community by caring for young street trees. Activities include weeding and refreshing the mulch around trees in the Thomasville Heights neighborhood.

Trees Atlanta prioritizes the health and safety of our volunteers and staff. Volunteers must observe the following precautions:

  • You must bring your own face covering and wear it at all times. If you do not bring your own face covering, you will not be able to participate.
  • Exercise social distancing of a minimum of 6 feet (please strive for 12 feet or more)
  • Groups will be limited to 9 or fewer, which means you must register prior to this event to ensure a spot
  • Please bring your own tools if you have them so that we can reduce tool sharing (suggested tools listed below).
  • Additional personal hygiene requirements:
    • Cover coughs and sneezes with elbows
    • Refrain from touching one's face
    • Wear hair up or wear a hat to reduce face touching
  • If you experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to an individual with COVID-19, please stay home until you have completed your recommended quarantine
  • If you feel ill during the volunteer project, please go home
  • By volunteering at this project, you are participating on your own accord and accept possible risks associated with interacting with other people
  • If at any time, any safety rules are not or cannot be followed, we will make adjustments to create a safer work environment, including ending the project early


This project is best for ages 12 and up. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Physical activity such as bending, lifting, and kneeling is required.

All volunteers must agree to this liability waiver when registering for this project or when signing in at this project. Please read the agreement carefully and select 'yes' on this field when registering. 


Projects happen rain or shine, so please check the weather beforehand and come prepared. We will cancel projects if inclement weather such as lightning occurs and is forecasted to persist for the duration of the project. Because weather is sometimes unpredictable, the decision to cancel is typically made at the project start time. We will contact you via email if we choose to cancel in advance.
