Rotary “Tree Planting Challenge”

Rotarians Jenny Levine and Peter Jacobi joined 30 volunteers to brave the cold on Jan 6 to plant 60 trees on James Street, sponsored by Keep Durham Beautiful and led by Durham Urban Forestry.

We joined  neighborhood families, volunteers from TROSA and others.  Rotary International President Ian Riseley has challenged Rotarians to plant 1.2 million trees this year, one for each Rotarian worldwide.

Join our Rotary Tree Planting Challenge to plant 200 or more trees (a tree for every member of our Club) by the end of April 2018, with Peter Jacobi and Jenny Levine.
Rotarians, family members, and friends are welcome to participate.  We hope to have at least 20 participants for each tree planting event.
