Updated Tuesday, 11 a.m.

Non-profit tree organization ReLeaf Michigan is partnering with Huron Township, Huron Township Rotary, Huron Township Parks and Recreation, and the DTE Energy Foundation to plant trees on Friday, April 27 at Lajko Park, 22700 Huron River Drive in New Boston.

Volunteers are needed for this project, and families are encouraged to participate.

ReLeaf Michigan tree specialists will be at the event to help volunteers learn how to correctly plant and maintain the trees.

Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes, comfortable clothing and bring a shovel, gloves, and other appropriate tools.

The group will meet at Lajko Park at 8:45 a.m. Friday morning.

Event occurs rain or shine and no planting experience is necessary.

ReLeaf Michigan, a non-profit organization, partners with communities statewide to replenish our tree canopies through tree planting events.
