Volunteers to plant trees at Flight 93
Event is Thursday
As part of its reforestation project, the Flight 93 National Memorial will host Plant a Tree at Flight 93 on Thursday.
The volunteer event will contribute to the 150,000 native trees that will be planted at the memorial, according to a press release.
More than 3,000 volunteers have planted 129,918 trees across 167 acres at the memorial since 2012.
For this year’s National Park Week volunteer celebration, nearly 200 volunteers will plant about 7,000 trees across 10 acres.
Due to the pandemic, the event has been modified, and will be limited to pre-registered groups and forestry professionals.
“We strive for a safe, one-day event with the tremendous support and appreciation of our partners,” Memorial Superintendent Stephen M. Clark said in the release. “Our hope is to expand Plant a Tree at Flight 93 next year to a multi-day event to accommodate additional volunteer participation.”
