Spread the Mulch Volunteer Work Day

Saturday, April 17th, 2021 from 8:00am to 11:00am (CT)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


Celebrate Earth Day and show the Park mulch love! More than just a pretty accent to the trees, mulch plays an important role in tree care and helps keep the trees in the Park happy and healthy!  Mulch helps retain water and helps prevent erosion. It also adds nutrients to help the trees grow strong and remain healthy.

Volunteers are needed to help spread mulch in various areas of the Park. Volunteers will work in socially distanced groups and will be required to wear a mask or face covering at all times. 

Bring: mask or face covering, work gloves, water, shovels

8:00am - Check in at First Horizon Foundation Visitor Center for assignments

8:30am - Welcome + Orientation

8:45am - Move to work sites

9:00am - 11:00 am - Work


Special thanks to International Paper, City of Memphis, CN Railway, Nike, Rotolo Consultants, Inc. and Home Depot!
