Belmont Citizen’s Forum Volunteer Day is April 28

Belmont Citizens Forum in conjunction with the Judy Record Conservation Fund

6th Annual Lone Tree Hill Volunteer Day, April 28, 9 am – noon. Rain or Shine!

On Saturday, April 28, from 9 am–noon, the Belmont Citizens Forum in conjunction with the Judy Record Conservation Fund is sponsoring its sixth annual Lone Tree Hill Volunteer Day, and we invite you to participate—rain or shine!

This year, we are having two different work sites, one to plant white pines along the Pine Allee, and a second to clean up the trash along South Pleasant Street, in the area across from Star Market and Artefact Home and Garden.

Pine Allee Tree Planting Work

If you’d like to work on the Pine Allee, meet at the Belmont Citizens Forum white canopy in the Lone Tree Hill parking lot on Mill Street. Please bring a shovel and gloves to plant the trees along the Allee. The Judy Record Conservation Fund is funding the Allee project to replace the trees that were either diseased or not viable in some other way.  The Tree Specialists, Inc. will be supervising the work.

Trash Cleanup at South Pleasant Street

If you’d like to work on the much-needed trash removal along South Pleasant Street, meet at the green-and-white “Belmont Bikes” Belmont Citizens Forum tent at the bottom of Coal Road, basically opposite the Star Market.

Students Earn Community Service Credits

High school and middle school students can earn community service credits—check in at the Belmont Citizens Forum tent or table, and make sure we sign off on your work. We recommend that children under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult.

We suggest wearing closed shoes, long sleeves and long pants to protect against potential sensitivities to plants and insects. Bring gloves, bug spray, and a water bottle.
