Get Ready!

Come help plant trees along the Oatka Creek this Saturday. Join us at the Genesee Country Village & Museum where we’re restoring an area where trees had to be taken down due to damage by Emerald Ash Borer.


Genesee Country Village & Museum Property on the north side of Flint Hill Road, Mumford NY – More information on parking will be available soon.


This Saturday, May 6 at 9:00 AM until we are done!

What to bring:

Tools to bring with you if you have them:

  • shovel and/or spade
  • planting bar
  • Pick axe and/or mattock tool
  • Hard rubber hammer, claw hammer and/or medium size ballpeen hammer
  • utility knife
  • empty 5-gallon buckets with handles
  • rake

Don’t forget to label your tools for easy identification.

And for yourself:

  • boots
  • work gloves
  • insect repellent
  • sunscreen
  • water & lunch

You might want to wear some rain gear, as according to the NOAA, there is a 90% chance of “occasional rain or drizzle” in Mumford on Saturday.  And don’t forget that bug repellent – the ticks are especially bad this year!
