Register for 100K Tree Day by Feb. 19, Pick up Trees in Oak Ridge
January 30, 2017
The Healthy Waters Program will be hosting a pick-up location for 100K Tree Day on February 25th, 2017. This is an event sponsored by the
Tennessee Environmental Council
in which 100,000 trees are planted throughout the state in one day.
The trees are being provided at no cost by the Tennessee Environmental Council (TEC) for participants to plant in their community. Trees help to absorb and filter polluted stormwater runoff before it reaches our streams.
If you are interested in being involved in this great event, you can
and order trees (at no cost) to plant at your home, school or in your community, courtesy of TEC.
The deadline to sign up is Sunday, February 19, but it is possible that they will run out of trees before then. After registering, make sure you pick up your trees on the date listed below.
When: Saturday, February 25th, 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Where: Jackson Square, 223 Broadway Ave., Oak Ridge, TN
Please note that the pick-up location will only have trees for those who have registered in advance.
If you have questions, contact our AmeriCorps members Caitlin Craighead and Tina Ball by sending an email to
