Please see the message below from the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy about helping plant trees along the Metropolitan Branch Trail. Maybe we can convince them to plant them all the way up to Edgewood too! :)
On Thursday, April 1, join Rails-to-Trails Conservancy as we volunteer with Casey Trees to plant trees in Washington, D.C.'s Eckington neighborhood immediately adjacent to the Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT). As spring begins to bloom and the trail nears completion, help us bring more green to the neighborhoods along the MBT!
Where: New York Pizza, 2 Florida Avenue, NE, Washington, D.C.At the corner of Florida Avenue and North Capitol Street, NE Closest Metro: New York Avenue (Red Line)
When: 8:30 a.m., Thursday, April 1, 2010

Rain or shine! Dress for the weather; wear durable, close-toed shoes and bring your own water bottle. Tools and instruction are provided, along with light refreshments. This event will occur rain or shine unless the weather is severe. Cancellations will be posted on the voicemail at 202.833.4010 by 7:30 a.m. the morning of the event.
After planting is done, join us for an informal walking tour of the trail and learn more about what's in store this spring and summer.
