Rotary Gives Thanks Tree Planting 2020/21

Spend a Day Planting Trees & Fighting Climate Change

Join us on any Saturday between 11/28/20 – 2/20/21 to plant trees and offset climate change.

Plant 10 trees, plus … 

  • All equipment is provided.
  • Free onsite parking is available.
  • Holes are pre-dug, volunteers won’t dig holes.
  • The event will comply with all COVID-19 safety guidelines.

As Hawaii residents, climate change poses a huge risk to our future. In the near future, ocean levels may rise and temperatures may become unbearable.
Plant trees and offset climate change. Each tree takes 48 lbs of carbon out of the air. 
Every person counts … please help us protect the future for ourselves and future generations. Only one group is allowed per time slot.  Reserve your spot now — spaces are limited!
This event is hosted by the Eco Rotary Club of Kaka’ako and Rotary District 5000. More information will be provided after registration.
